Skinningrove beck in full spate, a sight becoming more common now in recent years. The Gas House extension looks to be flooding. Kev Hamlinton also informs us:” This picture shows the old pumphouse at the end of Angling Green.”

Skinningrove Co-op

Skinningrove Co-op

A view of the former Co-op shop in Skinningrove, viewed from the entrance to Timms Coffee House. Such an imposing building in its heyday! From the days of long white aprons and the long wooden counters. Remember the ”dividend”, I can still remember mother’s number from 50 years ago!
