  5. We used to call in there when I was a child, my parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousin spent many a Sunday picnicking, it was a special treat for us to get some lemonade pop, maybe some crisps if were lucky, the adults always enjoyed their tea. Fond memories for me, left Sheffield in 1965 with my parents to come to 🇨🇦 Canada, but always like to visit Ford, and The Bridge Inn when we are vacationing

  11. Yes I remember this place, we used to walk to ford from Glendale’s, the whole family and enjoy a lovely day out and a picnic, we used to go to the tea shop and get a pot of tea for the grown ups, and if we were lucky a drink of pop and maybe some crisps. Like most families in the late 50’s/60’s money was limited, treats were special, but we were always happy, content and wanted for nothing....fond memories
