  1. The Salt Pans should have been demolished in the early 60’s, when Alnwick District Council placed a Compulsory Purchase Order on the property, just after Charlie and Peggy Gordon had bought it. Unfortunately, their solicitor won the court case for them and the rest is horrible history. For the humans and the poor animals they kept locked and chained up down there. And the RSPCA would do nothing. If you want to know more about the Salt Pans, you can read my story: A Tale of One House on my Twitter page.

    • Postscript.
      The court case was reported in the Northumberland Gazette, with photo of Charlie and Peggy Gordon outside the court house. That ended up on a dartboard – the newspaper cutting not the court house…..
      And did you know ? Doctor Robinson’s wife made delicious scones, selling them in Peggy Gordon’s shop on Percy Street.
