  No way me owd cocker, too busy owert stove mekint sunday roast.  :-))

   Clugthorpes has changed, no more Lobby lud and now you slide on chip fat on concrete flags.

   Regards Ian.

Know ferzackerly what you mean cocker !

I wish they had left Cleethorpes as it was in the fifties & sixties. I was so dissapointed when I went and saw that it had all been 'modernised'. 
No Wonderland, no little arcades at the bottom of the station approach, no gangs of kids on day trips waiting to go into the chip cafe at the top of the station approach.

No Lobby Lud.... no atmosphere.

RIP them days !

I have heard tell of a time BW  O0 (before women), a time when no decent woman would be found in a pub.
I'm too young (55) to know if this is only the wishful thinking of fools, or if indeed the golden age of pubs truly existed?

Yes it did exist, at least down under, here in OZ, but now they have been overrun by kids >>:-( <*<

And most CIU clubs had a man only bar - women were allowed in the lounge (some places only at the weekend )
This was not so long ago.
When I worked in Glasgow in the 70s No one was allowed into a pub on Sunday - only hotels were allowed to open.
There was one hotel on my beat that used to have a queue about 200 strong coming up to opening time.

The Tap room in a propper pub was a male sanctuary untill the bra burners of the sixties/seventies demanded their rights. The working mens clubs accelerated the inclusion of "little people" into alehouses as the norm.

  We have one in the suburbs of Bradford "Idle Working Mens Club"   %%

Any kids brave enough to venture into the New Dock Hotel (the blood  tub, Bidston) would have been eaten anyway...even the poliss didn't like going in there unless it was absolutely necessary !
