Hi Gents
Drove past the site (off Links Road Blyth?) only a few hours ago. As some of you may know there have been new houses built on most of it for a year or more. Think it was still running in the late 80's early 90's?

The Wellesley School site was sold off by the owners - Sunderland Council and the bad boys are now taken care of in Sunderland. As Gadgee says the site was slated for a residential development and is now dormant awaiting the next huge housing boom!

The freehold of the site is and always has been owned by the Trustees of the Wellesley School who have the site for sale. Sunderland City Council were Tenants up until 2006. The Trust has been converted into a financial trust which will in due course be acting for the benefit for the Children of the North East.

Hi I was in Wellesley 54 -56. I can still see in my mind a lot of faces but few names; I remember some officers names; Gough, Brown, Janaway and Wright. Because I was the only Welsh speaker Cpt Davey Jones had me read Welsh poetry etc to the Blyth literary society once a month in his house. I remember the summer camps in Hepple, Doing the Hornpipe in Deleval Hall and a couple of other places. Happy days.
