Brigham, East Riding of Yorkshire
Brigham is a small village in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England that forms part of the civil parish of Foston on the Wolds. The village is located mostly on top of a large hill to the west of the B1249 road and the Driffield Navigation passes through it.
Home to a sailing club since 1928, the Brigham Sailing Club is still going strong.
After the decline of traffic on the Driffield Navigation, the swing bridge was last prised open in 1967. After much protest, it was replaced by a fixed bridge in the 1970s, and was restored to full working condition again in 2003.
