Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Will they ever bridge the Humber?
I had heard this song just the once nearly 50 years ago in Manchester but the line about going round by Goole had stuck with me as my mother lived in Barton-on-Humber. I was probably the only person present who had even heard of Goole let alone been there.
I was delighted to hear it played on Radio 3 yesterday morning as a follow up to their series of river programmes the week before that ended at Spurn Head.
