An interesting image of 20 and 20-and-a-half Newgate Street, Morpeth, from many years ago has been submitted to the Herald by a relative of a former shop owner.

Harry Stone, a former Morpeth Cricket Club captain and church warden, took on the Board Inn during the 1880s and built up a good business noted for its ales and wines. Granddaughter Hazel Fowles brought along the photo.
