BRIGG READING ROOM - 21ST CENTURY STYLE
Historic Brigg Reading Room - a familiar feature of past centuries - has a modern equivalent.
Townsfolk in the past used to spend a few hours at the Exchange poring over periodicals and newspapers.
This continues today at the Yarborough Hunt pub where a wooden case near the bar contains newspapers and magazines that customers can take to their table and read while enjoying a pint.
Some regulars donate mags they have read.
Latterly the reading room operated in a portable building at The Hawthorns - the home of Brigg Town FC.
Much earlier, was it based for a time at Riverside House?
Senior followers of Brigg Blog will kindly answer that question for us.
