Hi, sorry for the slight correction.
That's Skipton Town, 18 miles from Clitheroe, just of the A59, we visit it regularly, the Fish & Chip shop on the bridge is called Bizzie Lizzies and they are very nice too.
Regards
Alan

Sorry - you are indeed correct Alan, it is Skipton. (We had a week in York, so we refer to the holiday as 'when we went to York' ;) )

We had a cracking pie and chips in The Castle Inn - staff were excellent too.

Mike (sorry for the thread hijack).

I can't see the point in a plate that means nothing to 99.9999999% of people :? Aren't they just an excuse to show off :?: Maybe its just me but I'm too tight to pay for the constant transfer cost of name related plates. I did look for a 928 related plate when I had the car but again I'm too tight to pay the asking prices:lol:

The people at the top of our road all have private plates and non of them make any sense to me :shock:
I assume it really referred to Gin & Tonic, it's just I was so involved in Gifted & Talented at the time that it took a couple of days before I realised the alternative but more obvious interpretation.

Quite a few years ago, there was a red Porsche 928 that I saw around here a number of times. It was registered TOO 510W. (somebody did tell me it belonged to mr Dutton of the eponymous kit cars?)

This is the only personalised plate I've ever had. You wouldn't believe the ribbing I got from friends and family when I bought it :lol:

Fully deserved :-)

As K1NGS was the most expensive number plate in the world for several years, I decided not to buy it :-) I do have OIL.... on an SS1 (on SORN) though.

Chatted to a doctor in a TVR on the M25 once (traffic jam, I was in the GTC and we both had our hoods down) - he had D153ASE.
