Peetleston? I Don’t Believe It!

On October the first 1950 a male bus driver from Ushaw Moor, reportedly named  R Peetleston, experienced his double- decker negotiating a five foot high hedge and coming to rest with its front wheels in a field. It was on the Sunderland to Durham route.

No fatalities.

We all know, don’t we, that his name was very likely NOT Peetlestone.

Might it have been Beetlestone? That’s an Ushaw Moor name from the 1950s.
