Memories of Boroughbridge

"Anne's Cafe"

I was born in Annes Cafe Boroughbridge in 1940 (we were lodging there). Dad used to have a few beers in the Crown and the Three Greyhounds during WW2. Mum and Dad told me they used to go "skinny dipping" in the "fish ladders?"* we moved from Boroughbridge to Merseyside sometime between 1940 and 1945 I will have to research exactly when. Does anyone where the "fish ladders" are or were?
