Memories of Bridlington, Limekiln Lane Camp c1955
Happiest memories are when our family would be in Bridlington at the caravan my grandad had. Bridlington will always be my favourite place.
I spent many a summer at this caravan site. My Gran used to own a caravan there. I have so many found memories of the pace and even though last time I was there would have been about 25 years ago, I can remember quite a lot - peeing in a bucket for one!! I've decided this year I want to come back to Bridlington, and spend a week retracing all the things I remember. I expect lots have changed, but hopefully some things may still be there. I couldn't remember the name of the place, but could picture the location, so with the help of google 3dmaps I found it. I want to stay on this caravan site. Does anybody know if it has a website or brochure you can order?
Limekiln Lane camp site is a special place for me, my grandparents spent many happy holidays there in the 1950s. Once their children arrived they went along too. Jaqueline and Harold had children of their own, I am one of those children. I have six children and every year we return for a fortnight, my children adore this special place. It holds lots of special memories for me and my family. My uncle now owns a van there, a little different from the early days of lighting the gas mantles and weeing in a bucket.
I have many fond memories of the holidays I had in Bridlington when I was young. We stayed with a Mr and Mrs Morris who lived at Havelock Crescent, I remember they had a daughter called Margaret. I used to love looking at the clock made from flowers which was on the front. I still come to Bridlington for 2 weeks every year but now stay on Pembroke Terrace.
The caravan site on Lime Kiln Lane in Brid is still flourishing - I had no idea it had been there so long! We are fortunate enough to have a place there for our grandchildren to enjoy the full benefits of the sea-side. Its a very happy place.
