1026 : Sailor's Bethel, Bridlington


Another of my 1960s photographs of the East Coast fishing town of Bridlington. This one features the old fishing harbour and the Sailor's Bethel which was a non-conformist church catering for the welfare and spiritual needs of fishermen and sailors. The building is still there but is now known by the less picturesque name of The Harbourside Evangelical Church.

Thanks for the photo. Brings back memories of a catamaran that we used to see in that spot for some years, probably late 60s', early 70s'. back in a time when Brid still had character.
