The Thrill Of The Shop At The Top Of The Cliff. - a Memory of Reighton.

We used to stay in the family bungalow in the 1960s (all the cousins remember it as a magical place) and play all over the sands and cliffs - still have the fossil collection. Big treat going to the marvellous shop at the top for postcards, sweets, buckets, spades - until very recently I had a souvenir of a blue china boat with a seagull, marked 'Reighton Gap'. Then driving for fish and chips at Hunmanby or the treat of Scarborough and Peaseholm Park. Great childhood memories. Reighton Gap, not Reighton Sands!
