The creation and development of one of the best known niche shopping areas in Brigg town centre is outlined in these pictures.
It's the first time Brigg Blog has seen images like these of College Yard between Wrawby Street and Old Courts Road.
So our thanks go to Terry Jaques for sharing the pictures which interest many of our followers.
As a Lincolnshire Times reporter almost 40 years ago we remember being invited down to the Jackson family jewellery shop sited on the corner of College Yard (now an estate agency) to hear about plans to refurbish this courtyard.
Terry tells us that he and business partner Paddy O’Boyle did the work.
Terry recalls: "We bought the old buildings and land from Winter Jackson and did the development; the first part was The Country Cottage coffee and health food shop, opened August 1982.
"We later extended the Country Cottage up to the rear service road but then sold the rear end shop, next to the service road, to Alan Dixon (fruit and vegetable shop).
"At this time College Yard was only a gravel road and was in very poor condition, and you could also drive your car through to Wrawby Street.
"We were not happy with this so we applied for a grant from the council and got it to do up College Yard as you see it today, and when completed the development was awarded the Civic Award.
"The old pictures show how the building was when we took it over. Some of the old buildings in your photos used on 18th March 2019 had already tumbled down or had been pulled and was in a heap of rubble."
His wife Janet ran the Country Cottage, her uncle having lived in one of the cottages within the yard. He was Ken Cammack - rear gunner on a WW2 Halifax bomber called Friday 13th.
