Old Photographs of Ferryhill

Derek Toon (photographer) has some great old photos of Ferryhill on his webpage, including some fantastic snow photographs taken in November 1965, showing deep snowdrifts and houses plastered with snow.

Readers may be interested that Alan Young has an excellent web page detailing the history of Ferryhill Station, from it’s opening in 1835 to it’s eventual closure to passengers on 6th March 1967.

There are examples of timetables and and rail network maps, along with old tickets and pictures. Well worth a visit for those who are old enough to remember it.

This will be the last issue of The Chapter for 2013, and staff here at the paper would like to take this opportunity to thank our readers and contributors for making this publication what it is, and for your continued support. Thanks also to all of our advertisers, without
whom it wouldn’t be possible to print this community newspaper.

We would also like to say thank you to a few people who help bring you your paper every week, come rain, shine or snow! Most of our contributors are volunteers, without whom, as a not-for-profit Community Interest Company, we would not be able to run.

Thank you to Norman Nash and John Brennan, two voluntary contributors. Thanks also to everyone at Addo Print in
Darlington and to our distributor, Rachel Ridley. Thank you to our many deliverers, who do a fantastic job in every weather conceivable.
Our biggest appreciation, however, is for you, our readers, who make this paper what it is. Without your news and information we would not be able to fill the paper every week. Please keep
it coming!

We look forward to seeing you all in 2014 with our first issue of the New Year on Friday 10th January. Merry Christmas! From Jeff, Steph, Les,  Sarah & Richard at The Chapter.
