Swalwell Folk



I am pleased to present some of the unselfish folk of Swalwell who are brave enough to feature here. Some of the photographs I took myself (mainly in the pubs) while others have been sent to me. Some from as far afield as Canada, New Zealand, the USA and Italy. (wherever ye gaan, yer sure to find a Swalweller..!)


If you see anyone on here who may have passed on, please let me know.


If you would like to appear on this page, or have photographs of Swalwell folk, please send them to me for inclusion. Thank you!

Brian Swalwell from Columbus, Ohio

Brian Swalwell Not exactly a Swalweller but anyone who would travel from Columbus, Ohio, to find out where his name came from, deserves the title of Honorary Swalweller at least.

Where are you now Brian? haven't heard from you in a long time.




Dave Kerr, known in the 60s as the scourge of Swalwell Co-op  . Originally from Lobley Hill, he was a well known frequenter of Swalwell's hostelries hence his title of Honorary Swalweller.

Currently believed to be on-the-run somewhere near the burg of Tofield in Alberta, Canada.
