To the left is a photograph of myself, Philip Holland.
I am in the garden at the Post Office Knightwick.
The caravan behind me had a family called Taskers living in it.
Mr Tasker worked on building the new embankment from the new footbridge downstream along the area below the Talbot Hotel car park. This had to be put in place, as after the centre pier of the old bridge had been removed, the river began to erode this bank, and today had the work not been carried out, there would be no Talbot car park.
