Made a short nostalgic visit to Brid last weekend on our way home from Northumberland.
Found a few places that I remembered and the bulldozers had been in other areas.
The tower block they built back in the 60's has gone only to be replaced by a new one!
The town was to say the least very dirty and scruffy. The front is kept well.
Stayed in the Expanse hotel - over priced and in need of tlc which I believe it is getting. Great view from our bedroom though over the bay. Not one flattie or ship in sight on the horizon. Some wind turbines in the distance.
That will be my last visit - the magic has gone but the memories prevail.

A couple of days ago, I watched Michael Portillo in the Brid station buffet on his railway show. Had my first drink in there .... the start of a slippery slope!

as a youngster catching the ledgarsds moorfield bus horsefoth to otley in the 50,s i recall on the bradford road out of otley the gpo monkeys training ground for telephone engineers [lotz of poles in the ground with umpteen felephone wires to interconnect above ground leve!].
I was a frequent visitor to otley swimming pool, hence the bus. Otley pool was gbe nearest unless one went into Leeds cookridge street.

Just memories

I was there last summer - stayed at the Expanse - it used to be the best hotel in Brid but far from it these days. A big error! Also found the town very dirty, not like in the good old days of th 60's. Did not venture up Shaftesbury Road.
