Subject: RE: Seeking the Pitman's Bible
Yes Dave, many a Sunday night playing fives and threes & three card brag were superseded by the wonderful Sunday nights at the Marsden- sorry to hear the Grey Hen has gone downhill. Was once warned by the police about making tunnels in a haystack which was on the site, before the pub was built - changed times! Built by Rowell's brewery of Gateshead- also long gone

On the subject of Bible Stories, the Newcastle publisher Frank Graham put out lots of thin publications (64pp?) on local culture. My memory told me that one of them was of Geordie Bible Stories?

I've just confirmed this- it's avaiable on Amazon for £3.50 or one penny if a used one will do! (plus p&p) Moses clashed the watter & it parted asunder or was it a Monda'-    or something like that...      

gan canny as Jim Irvine would say
