Holiday home, College Valley
Holiday home, College Valley
Built around 1920 by Miss Emma Pease of Alnmouth as a holiday home. She is said to have been a lovely lady who came up by car with her chauffeur and maid for holidays in the valley. She took a great interest in the little school at Southernknowe, entertaining the children to picnics at her bungalow and a jar or box of sweets at Christmas time. In 1930, on the day that the last passenger trains ran to and from Kirknewton Station, she invited the children and their mothers to her house at Alnmouth for tea! For most of the children it was their first train journey and first-ever trip to the seaside.
