bill\sables Lyr Req: Oakey Strike Evictions (Tommy Armstrong) (9) RE: Lyr Req: Oakey Strike Evictions (Tommy Armstrong) 24 Feb 12


Regarding the Guest post on 14th Jan 2006;
Oakey's colliery was not at Anfield Plain it was between Stanley and Tanfield. Perhaps he was thinking of another song "Oakey's Keeker" also by Armstrong. Oakey's Keeker worked at Oakey's pit but was nicknamed "Maiden Law Joe" from where he used to work, and Maiden Law is situated between Anfield Plain and Lanchester. The pit at Anfield Plain was called the "Morrison Busty"
Shepherdlass the "Red Row" pub prounounced "Reed Raa" was in Tantobie but has closed many years ago in the 20's I believe.
