Roadmender's hut - progress!

Roadmender’s hut – progress!

14th April 2009

I called in at Bowes today – the hinges and new gates build by John Moore (hinges) and Alan Milburn (gates) are coming along well and work should be finished shortly. Also on site was Paul Young (on his Easter holidays from school) painting the Beamish roadmender’s hut. Paul’s Grandfather Derek built this, with help from Paul’s fatehr John Young – three generations still working on a colliery site using traditional skills!
