BRIGG STREET STEEPED IN HISTORY
Here's a sunny spot - Coney Court, Brigg, which takes its name from the fact that the rabbit fur trade was carried out here in centuries past.
Brigg people, and visitors, are going to be seeing more of this cul-de-sac. For once North Lincolnshire Council proceeds with knocking down the old market stall storage building on nearby Cary Lane, it will open up more of Coney Court to full public view.
Brigg and District Servicemen's Club (left of picture) is not far short of its 100th anniversary.
There's been a chip shop/restaurant (right of picture) in Coney Court for decades.
At the far end, through the archway, the old courtyard opens onto the Market Place.
However, there's no vehicular exit at the other (northern) end of Coney Court - just the side of Wilko's store.
