Onthis Day

Summary


June 21, 1954: Only the rear bogie stopped an Immingham tramcar from plunging 40ft into a house below on Cleveland Bridge, Grimsby, early today. The car''s front bogie leaped off the rails as it started down the slope from the top of the bridge towards Grimsby, and the steel wheels ploughed deep into the road surface as the vehicle slewed round and crashed through the wooden fencing on the side of the bridge. The driver''s cab ended up suspended over the drop to the houses below. The driver and conductor escaped unhurt. The car had no passengers at the time. Hours after the accident, squads of workmen were trying to right the tram. Police directed single-line traffic which had to pass along the pathway because the road was completely blocked.

June 21, 1960: The Bishop Of Lincoln, the Rt. Rev. Kenneth Riches, consecrated the magnificent new St Mark's Church in Laceby Road, Grimsby, built at a cost of Pounds 30,000. The Bishop also paid tribute to the Ven. E. Lisle Marsden, Archdeacon of Lindsey, who died on this day.
