milk round

Frank Camp delivering milk to Stone Cottage in 1928. Ruth Johnson (nee Hayden) is bringing her jug to the door to be filled (no milk bottles in those days). Bill Camp took over the milk round from his brother Frank in 1970 and now Bill's son Dennis runs it with his wife Marion.... The Camps have had a milk round in the village for a very long time. When Bill's father, William (Billy) delivered milk there were four rounds in the village. The other rounds were run by the Balaams at The Bell, Elms Farm and Mrs Markwell from Ugley. All of them delivered twice a day after milking (our thanks tro Carol Eaton and Frances Roberts for the text.

Mill Road crossing

Mill Road railway crossing in 1949. The bungalow in the background called 'Hill Top' was built for the King family in 1930 by Ernie Wright. Walter King bought the land, which was part of Mill farm, in 1927 for the princely sum of £45. The waiting room at Mill Road on the left of the picture, used to be the signal box at Pidley-Cum-Fenton (about 7 miles north-east of Huntingdon). When no longer needed there it was moved to Henham to shelter villagers as they waited for the train (our thanks to Carol Eaton and Frances Roberts for their text taken from 'Memories of Henham").
