Carlin How – Maynard Arms, Riggs Butchers – 1893

Do you remember the butchers, or the bank (now believed to have been Lloyds, then followed by Martins) that was at that corner before they extended the Maynard Arms, now a car park occupies their space. From the left the properties were Riggs (butchers shop), Mrs Collins (lodging house) and the four panelled window of the Maynard Arms (landlord was Thomas William Wood). Roger Barwick tells the Archive: ” My grandad Harold Bowling became landlord at the Maynard Arms around 1929 I think. He had been steward at the club from 1911 when it opened. Quite a number of people will remember his son Harold or Tim as he was known he became a policeman and was awarded the British Empire Medal for saving people during a storm in Staithes.”

    Harold Bowling’s BEM was earned when he was village bobby at Staithes;one stormy night, with a broomshaft, he held off a floating mine from hitting the seawall. He later became sergeant at Brotton.
