Yes I threw you a curve there. Pickled onions and crisps, now long gone. Ex works WD looks to be heading for Low Fell with empties down towards Bensham Curve.

John William Hoggett, Hoggett's Foods. There are well founded claims that he invented the first flavoured crisp -vinegar- though, as always, there are rival claims from elsewhere. Reportedly died 1980 aged 69 years.

Bensham, Gateshead without a doubt. Hoggets moved to the then new industrial estate at East Gateshead but are now long demised.

The North-East has innumerable claims to fame. Every last Rolo is made in the region; Earl Grey tea originated here and it’s where John William Hoggett invented vinegar-flavoured crisps. John Lennon and Paul McCartney composed She Loves You in the Imperial Hotel in Jesmond, Newcastle – idiosyncratic features, perhaps, but positives nevertheless

I remember once asking my father why it was called "model factory", only to be answered by my mother that it was " a model of all the food that was unhealthy and bad for you." This from a woman who used to let me eat fried bread covered in HP sauce for breakfast.

"The High Level Bridge and Newcastle Central Station. 150 Years across the Tyne" by John Addyman and Bill Fawcett.

It's the only railway book I have with me in Japan and I wouldn't part with it for the world.

Malcolm
Malcolm,

Thank you for these fantastic pictures and the book reference.

For those others who have been watching Malcolm's photographs of Newcastle Central and the High Level Bridge, you really need to look for a copy of this book. It is one of those publications that is nigh on impossible to put down. It is a goldmine of information, not just for the railway content, but other structures in Newcastle such as the Grainger Market.

John,

Thank you for that Kind Sir.
I got my copy from Amazon in Japan. Cost 3,212 yen AND IT'S STILL AVAILABLE. I don't know how that translates into pounds as I've lived here so long.

Can I add my thanks for all the wonderful photographs - and the book will be on my list as well.

I was under the impression that part of it had been claimed and until the last year or so it was stacked against the wall of the NRM in Network Rails welding school carpark.
Or am I mistaken?

I must confess to a lack of knowledge about certain things. The attached photo had me a little confused at first. LNWR Goods at Liverpool Street station? So I did a little digging, and after looking at the Railway Junctions diagram (also attached) and the history of the area, everything became clearer. I'm starting to realise that the pre-grouping situation of alliances, running powers, interweaving of routes, joint ventures, etc. was very complicated and convoluted. I have a few of the Railway Junction Diagrams and some them are a maze of connections, companies and lines.

Learn something new everyday.

Take, for example, Leeds and Carlisle in pre-grouping days.
