Another feature on the ‘Must Re-Visit’ list is Withernsea Lighthouse. I remember as a kid going on holiday to Withernsea (pronounced Withren-sea or just ‘With’ by us!) and as the bus neared the town, the first person to spot the lighthouse would get a tanner! I am sure […]

Our relocation to Hedon took place on Saturday 24th January 2009 following redundancy on the west coast (Blackpool). So here we are in the idyllic town of Hedon in East Yorkshire. Having been born in Hull and lived in the area all our lives prior to 2000, we […]
