Thank you for visiting About Blyth

I am a 69-year-old happily retired ex Power Station Supervisor, I have ran this personal website from 2003 to date.

I am very interested in the development of the Blyth area over the years. I am out and about taking pictures and gathering images almost daily. I would appreciate any information or donation pictures of the Blyth area.
I wish to thank the following people for allowing their images to be shown here:-
Ron Dobson, Dave Durward, Steve Wilson, Henry Pattinson, Dave Edwards, Dave Coussons and many others.
All images are the copyright of their respective owners.
