In the differing worlds of town and country, I have always had a foot in both camps. ‘Up The Valley’ told of childhood summers spent in
Coquetdale. This companion book is the other side of the coin – a policeman’s daughter’s childhood spent in the streets around Newcastle in the post war years, when entertainment was, of necessity, home made and P.C. still stood for ‘Police Constable’.
Tales, humorous and otherwise as the family moved from a ‘prefab’ in South Shields’, then various police houses in Newburn, Seaton Burn and Wideopen, up to the point when they left the town and moved to Wooler at the foot of the Cheviot Hills.
