Bennett's Ford van

I was born at a very early age ….is the opening sentence of Harry Bennett’s recollections of life as a baker in Campden and gives us an indication of the dry humour that pervades his stories.

The full story will be published here in instalments and we are starting with some memories that we hope will give you some Christmas enjoyment.  See below….
