The Queen visited Hexham last in 1974, to mark the 1300th anniversary of the Abbey. Pictured here crossing Beaumont Street with the corner of No 8 (Hexham Courant) and No 9 in the background, she is with the Bishop of Newcastle (R. Bowlby) and the Rector of Hexham Abbey (R. Lemmon).
As the second photo shows, there were potholes in Beaumont Street even then, albeit small ones!
Other Hexham events may have photos in the Hexham Events Gallery.
