    Getting round Brid at the moment is a nightmare in areas all over town. In the time they have spent on 100 yards of road near me they built a 50 mle 6 Lane highway in China, laid 100 miles of railway track and built a new airport.

    Getting around Brid is always a nightmare mainly down to the amount of dogshit on the pavements.

    A couple of pubs are re-opening. The Dram Shop is reopening as a pub and The White Hart is reopening as a pub and a hotel.

    Looks like it blends right in with adjoining properties.

    Excellent news, the Dram Shop's Island bar and ornate ceiling pretty unique for Hull and the White Harte a great characterful pub with mahogany front bar back area with ceramic fronted counter. Hope they both put some proper ale back on.

    Missed all of that, year I left the Army and settled here. Those buildings were marvellous, the real core of the city. I shall have a wider walk next time in Hull, as I haven't really trod those streets since the early seventies. What a bloody shame.
