Re: Gods County

I was born in Bridlington on the Yorkshire coast.

 

@shutter I also remember the bags of reject chocolates. A friend used to bring them for us. I seem to remember ours came from Rowntree's.

Re: Gods County

Certainly agree Yorkshire has a lot to offer, folk can be a bit secretive there as I have often asked about the tea plantations but all you get in return is a smile.

Re: Gods County

The fishing's good in Yorkshire too, I can vouch for that.  Thumbs Up

A float tip is pleasing in its appearance and even more pleasing in its disappearance.

Ah the Yorkshire Belle, I remember it well. Always a treat to cruise along the cliffs to Bempton and Flamborough Head.

 

Although I was born in Brid I actually grew up in Flamborough and returned there each summer when my family moved south.
