NZ1884 : Morpeth "Common"

taken 13 years ago, near to Tranwell, Northumberland, Great Britain

Morpeth "Common"
Morpeth "Common"
Common Grazing land that once formed part of Morpeth Common still retains the name, but has been given over to purposes other than grazing. The 1940s maps show it as a rifle range, but during World War Two it was used to house Polish refugees, who still maintain a strong presence in the locality. It was also used as a hospital, before being turned into its current use - a rugby pitch (the football ground lies just off shot to the right).
