The 'preacher'

A Memory of Burton-in-Kendal

I lived in Burton, about 1958, with my parents, older sister Susan, and baby brother Anthony. We lived in Hornby House. Do you remember a man who used to stand at the Market Cross and preach to the locals? He used to shout so loud we could here it when we were in our house.
