tickle_cock_bridge TICKLE Cock Bridge is Tickle Cock Bridge was ever Castleford, West Yorkshire’s, Tickle Cock Bride and must remain Tickle Cock Bridge.

It is not Tittle Cott bridge, as the plaque bearing that dread name says it is. Castleford Area Voice for the Elderly say it is Tickle Cock Bridge. It is a name they grew up with. The new plaque carries the legend “Tickle Cock ”.

Margaret Shillito, the group’s chairman, tells us:

“Tickle Cock is how the bridge has been known for generations. We love the name, it has got character and history. We don’t want a name there for posterity that is wrong.”
