The Royal Oak pub is on the corner of Watwer St and Grassinton road. Jim Greenwood was Landlord and my father in law, they had the pub between 1955 and 1963

On the left is a doorway at an angle. In the mid 50s the hottest place in town was there where they had an Espresso Coffee Bar and A JUKE BOX. Didn't make any girl friends there - probably just a bit too young! Aah.

I remember the brass band rooms very well. I was briefly a member of the Skipton Junior Band during 1983. There was an old building at the end of the gap between the Castle and whatever was on the other side. You went through a door and up the world's rickettiest stairs and attempted to play a trumpet for an hour in a fantastically cold room. I have no idea what the original purpose of the building was.
