Old Brough - a Memory of Brough.

When I came to live at Brough there were two shops, plenty of banks and churches and two pubs, the Buccaneer and the Ferry Inn. I visited both on numerous occasions. I worked at both the timber yard and what was then Hawker Siddleys. I was 25 years at Brough. I visited a month ago and didn't know it, the merger with Elloughton is amazing, the new housing is vast . It is not like the old Brough at all, though Station Road hasn't changed that much since the old days.
