Chalets On The Cliff Top - a Memory of Aldbrough.

I was born in Aldbrough in 1947.

We lived in a wooden chalet on the cliff top.

I remember running to meet my father (Les Blondell) coming home on the bus from his work in Hull . He worked at Rhubens curtain shop on the corner of Ferensway and Anlaby Road.

There was a farm behind the chalets. My Grandparents (Blondell) also had a chalet there but I think that maybe theirs was just used in the summer.

I vaguely remember my mother telling me that our chalet either burnt down or caught fire at some point.

We moved to Hull I think about 1951 as I started school in Hull but I can still remember walking into the chalet and that there was a curtain under the sink!

I would love to see any photos of the chalets if they still exist!
