The story of Grandipops Originals
In the late 70’s early 80’s I used to have to go to work with Dad who was a bridge surveyor for the Yorkshire Dales National Parks. Couldn’t afford a sitter in the school holidays. He made me walk bloody miles to get to remote bridges sometimes but we always had a packed lunch. Dad would photograph, measure, and check the structure to see if the bridge was worth saving. He would then sit down beside me and hand draw the bridge.... I have a lot of his drawings. My Daughter who calls him Grandipop has had the most amazing idea and out of my childhood, “Grandipops Originals” have been born. Our very own sweets will now feature in our farm shop. The bridge is Thorns-Capnut which stands over the River Ribble close to the Ribblehead Viaduct.
