Sending this from Massachsetts, usa. Used to be a Yorkshire lass in the 60's before emigrating. Your pub was a favourite place for meand my friends from the Middlesbrough area. Also my cousin Dorothy worked there sometime during the 70's, when Back Door was there, Ihave their first album (i think) I has a picture of the pub in winter. Theres nothing like an english pupb especially one on the Yorkshire Moors. Just had to tell you what a great web site.See you on my next trip,only don't know when that will be at the moment! Sincerely, Jean
Nice to hear from you Jean. You might like to take a look at http://www.blakeymusic.com/backdoor.htm - we managed to get Back Door up for a reunion gig in March 2003 (after 31 years!). They all had a ball and will probably be back for a few more gigs this November.
