Looks like Reading has some competition in it’s bid for city status.
Goole has applied for said status.
According to Howard Duckworth who spearheaded the campaign, Goole has everthing going for it – I quote “We’ve got one of the biggest ports; we’ve got junction 36 industrial park which is inches away from the M62 [motorway]… we’ve now a fledgling tourism industry with the Waterways museum and Blacktoft Sands.”
Even people from Hull take the piss out of Goole.
I have unearthed some photographs of Goole.
Roadtrip to Goole, anyone?
