A Stroll Down Memory Lane

With Lloyd Greenwood

Lloyd continues his boyhood stroll down Memory Lane, taking us round one of the oldest areas in Hebden Bridge.

Says Lloyd: Bridge Mill is one of the oldest buildings in town. A former corn mill, in my young day it housed clothiers Greenwood and Pickles. On the corner was a sweet shop with an open counter under an awning. This spot was always known as "Lazy Nook." There was also a tripe shop run by Farrars, who prepared the delicacy at their premises in Horsehold Road.

Lloyd visits Crown Street in our autumn issue - and reveals the major part the Co-op played in the life of the town.

Lloyd well remembers St George's Square in the 1960s, when you could enjoy a cuppa at the Corner Cafe and the square had yet to be pedestrianised.
