Benny

Recommended Posts

Doe's any of the Station Folk remember Benny's travelling shop doing the rounds on a Sunday morning?

Yup, That would be Benny Andrews. His place was where Ian Gerards cycle shop is now opposite the Bank Top pub. Benny was a right character, sometimes he would be seen on a Sunday afternoon heading down the furnace bank on his way to the woods with the horse and half a dozen local kids on its back. Benny worked till he was a good age. He gave up in the end partly due to the fact that he kept getting broken into [the shed behind the house was where he kept his stuff for the round]. The stable was behind there as well and it kept getting vandalised. The police often had to take Benny's horse home quite often in a distressed state after some of these break ins.
