Nostalgia: A multitude of drinking dens

Apart from its premier coaching inns, Regency Scarborough had a multitude of drinking dens, respectable and otherwise. Starting down at the harbour front, it then seemed that almost every other address served the needs of thirsty fishermen, ship-building workers and passing-trade merchant seamen.

Dining Out: The Bridge Inn, Ruswarp

Firstly, it has to be said that The Bridge at Ruswarp is unequivocally, unashamedly, a drinker’s pub. It makes no pretensions to be anything other – it’s a good, friendly village pub, and on our visit it was packed – with drinkers.

Nostalgia: No room at the inn

Scarborians were very slow to offer adequate and appropriate accommodation to their visiting “spawers”. In 1697, Celia Fiennes had been fortunate to find “good accommodation on reasonable terms”, perhaps because she was willing to be a guest of Quakers and took her own bedding with her on her travels.

Country Diary: Nature has cast her wand over the countryside

A dog is man’s best friend. However, over the past decade many peaceful, country walks have been ruined by unprovoked aggressive attacks by unleashed pets. Farmers have complained of sheep being chased or killed, and dog owners have themselves to blame if their pet is shot.

Businesses on The Shambles, Malton, Howards friend Derek operated from No 7 Antiques.

Howard Croft column: Unsuspected connections of our dear friend, Derek

The name Derek Garrator was I suspect less widely known than the man himself. He it was who sat in the window of his unit in the Shambles (Malton), always in a flat cap, from which he sold antiques. Derek died towards the end of March. About 10 years ago, shortly after we came to live in North Yorkshire, Mrs Croft and I bought from him a delightful Victorian wooden high chair for use by grandchild number one, Archie, who refused to be put into it. Grandchildren numbers two, three and four also refused.
