RIPLEY’S REMINISCENCES returns today with a photograph of a barge on the Hedon Haven taken in 1952.
Another reminder of the role our waterways have played in the history of the town. The Hedon Haven was a watercourse linking to the Humber that once made Hedon one of the most important ports in the country. The last remnants of the ancient harbour were land-filled in 1974.
Malc Ripley is keen to share his old photos with residents via the Hedon Blog but remarked recently that the Blog actually gets scant feedback on this kind of item. So we would like to make an appeal to residents – Do you enjoy Ripley’s Reminiscences? What kind of pictures of old Hedon and district would you like to see more of?
