Fishing Lodge, Countesspark Wood
Fishing Lodge, Countesspark Wood
Said to be built by Canadian Airmen during World War 2 in exchange for fishing rights which were granted by the Duke of Northumberland. On one of our many visits to the picnic table on the riverside of the lodge we saw the present Duke catch a salmon which he put back in the river because "it was coloured". Evidently last year's fish! The lodge has two bedrooms.
8th October 2014 another fisherman's tale
We returned to one of our favourite spots on the River North Tyne hoping to make use of the picnic table outside the fishing lodge. There were fishermen around the lodge --- during a conversation with one of them I mentioned the previous story I had heard about the construction of the lodge. He was puzzled by this since he said it had been there since 1885. He took me into the lodge and showed me a photo of a group of fishermen standing outside the lodge and the date on the back was 1885.
