Broad Chalk Garage

A Memory of Broad Chalke

My uncle Fred Moon had this garage from the mid 1930s till he retired, he was also the village blacksmith. He was a great prankster, if a rep came to the garage that did not know Fred and asked for Mr Moon, Fred would look round and say "He must have gone to Salisbury and he won't be back till late".
He used to take me for long walks up on the local downs and also to the watercress beds.
We also used to visit a Kate Penny who had a shop at Bower Chalke.
My Uncle Hugh Moon also lived at Broad Chalke.
