Ridley was a common surname in the NE so it is possible she was named after a relative or friend rather than a pub.

This is a photo of the Ridley Arms as it was on 'Northumberland Street' at Blyth in 1966;

Some photos of the Odd Fellows pub on Northumberland Street, Blyth. Two buildings occupied the site, one of course an early structure, and then the rebuilt pub which still stands to this day and can be seen on mapping here, though I believe it has now closed;

Just mentioning that Northumberland Street at Blyth has had different names over the years. Once upon a time it was Blagdon Street, besides Northumberland Street and now it is an extension of Bridge Street!

Wonderful to see the old photos.

On the NLS maps there appear to be two pubs on Northumberland Street. Can anyone work out which might have been which on the map? :-\

The pubs I know of along that stretch of road were The Blyth & Tyne, The King's Head, The Star & Garter and then The Oddfellows. The Ridley Arms was farther along on the west side of Bath Terrace.
