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!

Priceless memories.
