Subject: RE: Lyr Add: The Battle of Sowerby Bridge
Just come across this thread and it brought back so many delightful memories of being in Dave & Heather's company in the 1970/80s.
I recall a hairy drive with Dave driving with his one arm along narrow roads with high stone walls on either side - but we got to their house were among the convivial chat I was introduced to a West Yorkshire delicacy - fruit loaf, cheese and jam. I still treat myself on a fairly regular basis.
Dave, was of course, the originator of the end of Whitby Folk Week communal singing of the Wild Mountain Thyme. Edmund and I were queuing at the old Pavilion bar when Dave struck up and we forgot all about the desperate need for more alcohol in order to join the massed chorus!
