N.e.s.w.t

The North Eastern School of Wireless Telegraphy.
From 1911 until its demise in the mid 1960's.
Sited at Otley and Bridlington.

I was one the last intake to complete their tickets there in 1964. Others had to move to other establishments to finish theirs. Link below

The site at Otley must have been where all the little Telewag poles were planted in the field, I presume? Been past Millions of times, about 1 mile away from our 'ouse.

FJ,

Not certain of where it was located just that it was there at sometime/s. There I believe during WW2.
Don't know if it is mentioned on either of the sites I posted.

Chris,

Cold and under fed most of the time. Beans on toast a gourmet delight. Down to the Cafe near the Monarch for a sausage roll - if we could afford one. Now that is something to tax the memory - the name of the Cafe and the name of the owner of the tobacconists who used to sell us even one ciggy when we were desperate. Afraid I cannot remember the names but the location is still in the memory bank.
Talking of the Monarch Hotel - still there by the way - I always said I would stay there one day. After my first trip I did go and stay there and it was OK

I may well make a nostalgic visit in July as heading north to Morpeth to visit a friend so may make a detour on the way home to see how it looks now. My last visit a few years back around 2002 not much had changed.

Sally's Cafe in the basement of the hotel on the seafront ?
Not sure who runs it now.
I was in Brid at the eastern end of The Way of the Roses last summer.

Just looked up the Way of the Roses. Wow, that's interesting ... (Games of Thrones fans will be delighted.)

Chris,

Yes that sounds like it. Amazing it still has the name.

A 4 day cycle ride! Looks good but I have not ridden a bike for so many years now. Too dangerous with the traffic etc.

Just to clarify, Got wrong address, Sally's cafe is no longer, it now appears to be part of a seafront apartment block. I totally mistook the area it was in when we finished the ride (knackered - needless to say)
Sorry - a victim of old age. The Life boat station is still where it was though !
