If you want to catch the big fish you need to dig up the big worms. This young man seems to have excavated half Bridlington beach in his search for lugworms.

Beach Steps

28 Feb
Maybe not quite in the league of the Odessa steps but nevertheless a fine descent to the sandy delights of Bridlington’s north beach.

Seen better days

Sadly the economy can no longer afford even a cheap and cheerful store like Nixie Plonks which gave up the ghost last year. Here it was in “better” days.

The Street of the Keeping of Hens

Hengate in Beverley is a busy little ratrun across town. A sign nearby informs the passing tourist that Hengate gets its name from the keeping of hens in olden days, well I think we might have guessed that. On Hengate  is a pub known to all and sundry as Nellie’s; I know it’s got a sign saying White Horse Inn, it’s just called Nellie’s, ok, just don’t ask awkward questions.
