Not a bad place to be in a flood as long as the cellar was ok.   Many years ago I was trapped inside a pub in Scotland for 3 days  because of 9 foot of snow.

Hull last night......................

Many years ago I was trapped on the A69 with another lorry driver in a pub in Brampton village square for three days.

His name was Teddy Coggins, an old Geordie about to retire. The first night I was entertained by his fantastic stories of 50 years on the road, from being a driver's mate on Sentinals, then driving all through WW2 on hooded headlights, right up to his first sleeper cab, that was parked next to me in five feet of snow on the square.

The second night he repeated himself a fair bit.

The third night I could have throttled him!




Teddy Coggins, when we finally reached Newcastle, March 21st 1979

Was working in Whitby and popped in for a quick pint before heading home and nice pub but the OBB seemed watered down.
