    As a young lad growing up in Structons Heath, I knew George very well, he used to plough with two heavy horses, until one day, the Banks family decided to move into the 20th century, they bought a new grey Ferguson t10 I think It was. George who was visually challenged used to really dislike this new arrival, he would whistle as he drove it out of fear I suspect, one day he lost control of it and drove into the duck pond up at the Hill House, I think I remember it was his trusty horses that pulled it out. Much laughter from Mr Nerc Cooper the head farm hand back in the sixties and Mr Ben Hinton, an excellent hedge brushed, sadly Georges failing health caught up with him, I remember my mother , Mrs Mary Cartwright, would take home a meal over to his small cottage over at the Rock. My Mum is now in her very late 80s and of failing health herself. Wonderful memories of Hill House Farm
    Thank you
    Walter Cartwright
