Interesting vaguely Hull related facts anyone? 09:49 - Apr 12 with 1225 viewsKeno

Inspired by Hypy and cos I'm bored does anyone know anything interesting vaguely Hull related?

All I can think of is Rod Hull, although he came from Kent and Emu, which come from Australis

Probably the best I can think of is that Lee Bracey played for both us and Hull.

As did Alex Bruce - the two clubs he made most appearances for out of all his clubs.

It’s not Hull at all. It’s Kingston upon Hull. Which is quite interesting.

For reasons that are still unclear Hull was given East Anglian status by Anglia TV in the 60s. Mind you they did have a very good team with Chilton and Wagstaff up front often making entertaining viewing on Match of the Week

It’s also a pretty vile place - hence that old Yorkshire saying ‘From Hull, Hell and Halifax, the Lord God preserve us (or words to that effect)

Having had a glance this morning, I'm minded to think your ad needs the U changing to an E.

It is a little know fact that Alex Bruce is a distant relative of Robert the Bruce famed for his saying 'If at first you dont succeed bring him down in the penalty area, thrown a hissy fit and sent off"

The Humber Bridge is feckin big.....and goes to North Lincolnshire which is marginally more interesting than Kingston Upon Hull.

We have no village green, or a shop. It's very, very quiet. I can walk to the pub.

Journalist and Lebanese hostage John McArthy is an alumni of Hull university and the Students Union bar is named after him.

Also, William Wilberforce MP who was instrumental in abolishing slavery.

Cream-coloured telephone boxes were unique to Hull. Not sure if they still have them.

It was all to do with the Belmont Transmitter. The signal stretched into Lincs and part of Yorkshire. I'm sure there's a better explanation of it somewhere but the transmitter was transferred to Yorkshire TV sometime in the 70's. I believe there are some people in North Norfolk who can pick up 'Look North' etc now.

Housemartins (and latterly Beautiful South) hail from Hull.

Paul Heaton could regularly be found drinking in a pub called the Grafton Arms when I was a student there.
