Swalwell - Bridge End Cottage
Tolls were taken here for the old stone bridge on the Gateshead to Hexham turnpike. The date 1760 appears on the wall and it is Swalwell's second oldest building after The Angel.
My grandparents used to live there from 1963 until 2006. I have a lot of fond memories of the cottage, now owned by my uncle, George Kerridge. My grandparents were George and Nellie Kerridge.
