(05:09) Image of the new building once the pulpit and the pews had been removed, taken in 2008, the day after it was opened. (05:15) Enid explains some of the new activities that were pursued after the refurbishment, something she was particularly pleased with was the fact that mothers and children could use the space. (05:41) Photograph showing the Market Hill being used for people to sell their goods. (05:58) Photograph of goods being sold , paying particular attention to the fact that it shows a firm from Hull. (06:24) Looking at the map, Enid explains that looking the other way on the map indicates that the Market Hill of the past is very much different from today.

(8:25) Image of the narrow part of the market place. (08:33) Image of the market place in 1910. Enid believes that until around the Second World War, the market was situated on the road. (08:44) Enid mentions the public house on the right of the picture, called 'The White Swan', known locally as the 'Mucky Duck'. She believes it gained this title because it wasn't very clean. (08:54) Enid says that the stalls on the image from 1910, mentioned earlier, were situated on the road until the Second World War due to there being too much traffic through the town around that time. (09:04) Image of an ironmongers called Cooper's. Enid says that this photograph was taken before 1910 as the proprietor, Samuel Cooper, soon after moved over to the other side of the road in 1910.

Enid mentions that the building on the right was previously used for women to wait for their fathers or husbands to come out of the pub. Enid's mother used to wait there for her husband.

(16:55) Image of Enid's father, Harold William Lyon, who was the next person to take over the shop. He kept it until he retired, when it was sold as he only had three daughters and no sons to take over the family business. (17:11) This is what the area would have looked like in 1928, the year Enid was born. The operation was motorised, apart from the errand boy. (17:29) The family shop as it appeared in 1932. (18:02) Enid mentions that the family moved out of the shop in 1934 and offices were put in place above the shop floor area.

(18:29) Enid mentions that the shop's coffee grinder always led to customers associating the shop with a strong smell of coffee.

(30:49) The first bus coming to Market Weighton from Londesborough, and then on to Shiptonthorpe. Enid mentions that fares were different for even the smallest journeys. It cost more to travel from Londesborough than Shiptonthorpe, and this made some passengers angry. (32:01) Enid mentions that clothes at that time were very different from today.

The original volume is a 246-page handwritten history of the Bell and Gell families of north east England. Most of the manuscript was written by William Bell in 1869, although it includes a few pages of notes from 1893 and a few pages added by his brother Charles in 1869. Much of the narrative takes place in East Yorkshire, mainly around the villages of Norton, Patrington and Hollym as well as in Hull. It includes family history information, local descriptions and anecdotes, predominantly relating to the nineteenth century but also reaching as far back as the seventeenth. The family practised Wesleyan Methodism so this volume may also be of interest in the study of the early practice of this religion. This is a copy of a transcript produced by University of Manitoba librarian Christine Bone, the original volume is part of the University of Manitoba Archives and Special Collections. It was donated to the University of Manitoba Libraries by Dr Andrew Taylor. The copy was downloaded to CD-ROM by East Riding Archives and Local Studies staff from the University of Manitoba's website at Supplementary information from this website has also been used for this catalogue entry.

(07:43) Tommy Goodwill lived at Mill Hill in South Cave, sometimes called 'Frog Hall'. (08:22) The Goodwills were general builders. They subcontracted out work to other trades such as plumbers and electricians, but they had their own bricklayers and joiners. (09:04) An earlier Tommy Goodwill built St Mary's Church at Broomfleet, in 1860. (09:46) Reg Mason was a bricklayer's apprentice at Goodwills. (10:28) Alan Page lists the three principal joiners at Goodwill: Percy [Longrick], Alan's father and Harry Taylor. Albert Adamson was a bricklayer. (11:39) They began work at 7.30 in summer and 8 o'clock in winter, and finished at 5.00 in summer and 4.30 in winter. (12:16) Everyone bicycled to work. After the war some employees, including Alan, got motorcycles. (12:34) Alan's bricklaying apprenticeship was 7 years. There was a gap while he served in the army during the war. (14:02) His wages were about 18 shillings a week when he started. This rose to half a crown an hour. (15:14) Alan was trained by Frank [Meshaw] while acting as his labourer.

(21:37) Tommy [Dewett] and Ted Sylvester joined them as apprentices [at around this time.] (22:52) Goodwills had very little machinery. They did not have a cement mixer or any other machinery until after the Second World War. (23:28) They used bricks from Broomfleet and pipes from Newport. A lot of their building materials came from Douglas Williams in Beverley. (24:59) They also worked on Cave Castle when Mrs Radcliffe lived there, after the army had occupied it. (25:42) Mr Carmichael did up Cave Castle before the [Second World War], although he only ever lived in the Lodge.

(27:24) Alan Page says that there was supposed to be a tunnel at the back of the Church, on the Castle side. (28:14) The tunnel entrance was just through the gate at the back of the Church. (29:20) Alan Page left Goodwills in 1960. After this he was always self-employed. (30:23) Goodwills swapped premises with Dr [Stores-Fox] before Alan Page began working there. Originally Goodwills were based in what was called The Manor House. (31:38) Henry Wilson, another builder, built a [housing] estate in his yard, which also went through Goodwill's top yard. (32:10) Alan Page says that it was easy starting work on his own as there was lots of work about. (32:46) Alan had Harry Johnson working for him as a labourer, Graham [Curley] as a bricklayer, and Don Mason as a joiner.

(37:54) Sheila, Alan Page's wife, did his paperwork for him. (38:59) Alan Page says that the nature of his work didn't really change over the years, but there were gradually more rules and regulations. (40:55) In 1977 he worked on the clock tower of All Saints Church, South Cave, installing a clock there. It tended to stop in heavy winds, so it was later replaced by another builder. (42:41) The clock was funded by money left over from the Queen's Silver Jubilee celebrations. Mike Morton was one of the young people involved. (43:39) Alan Page often worked with a joiner called John Morton. (43:53) Alan Page built the brick pillars for the gates at the back All Saints Church, South Cave. The gates there are in memory of Vicar James Victor Elliot. (46:04) Mr Wade at the Dower House in [South Cave] gave Alan Page a lot of work. (47:26) Alan Page moved to South Cave in 1950, the year he got married. He lived in a bungalow at 91 Beverley Road, which was made of asbestos. (49:46) Mrs Ratcliffe sold the bungalow to Alan Page in 1958, after renting it to him previously. (51:35) Alan Page built many extensions to the bungalow when he owned it. There are two houses on the site now. Mr Coates of Quinton Homes bought the bungalow from him. (55:00) In 1942 Alan Page was called up. He failed his second medical and could only serve in this country. Alan served as a driver at Nostell Priory and also at the Aldershot Arena, which was full of army vehicles. (58:27) He was demobbed in 1946. (59:20) Alan Page's grandparents had a Post Office at Newbald. His future wife used to go for rides on their [postal delivery] cart when she was a little girl. As a child, Alan once refused to ride with her. He met her as a adult at a dance in Hotham. Her maiden name was Sheila Packford. (1:03:08) Cliff Leake was the name of the plumber Alan always employed. (1:03:23) Alan used Mr Barlow from North Cave as a electrician. (1:04:04) When Alan worked at Goodwills he had a Ford van to get to and from work. (1:04:32) When Alan left to work for himself, he used a trailer with his van. (1:04:47) His first proper vehicle was a BSA three-wheeled car which he got in 1948. (1:05:31) Alan had a Norton motorcycle. When he married Sheila in 1950 they went down to London on it. (1:07:16) Opposite their home on Beverley Road was a big house, where Miss Kingston lived on the ground floor and Mr and Mrs Macturk lived on the first floor. (1:08:06) Miss Kingston loaned the Pages her car to take their daughter Susan to her christening in 1960. (1:08:42) Sheila Page used to clean for Miss Kingston and the Macturks.
