A Short Stay In Eccleshall - a Memory of Eccleshall.

I stayed in The Kings Arms Hotel for a week when I came to Eccleshall in April 1975. I was there for a weeks training with my new employer F H Burgess Agricultural Engineers.
They had one of around 130 branches in Stafford Street and it was my first experience of working in the farming community as I had previously been in the motor trade. I remember what a really friendly and helpful crowd they were, mostly fairly old folks, who were just so kind to a real rookey who didn't know a plough share from a billhook. I wonder if anyone has any photos of Burgess's from that era? or knows of anyone who worked there. - Keith Wicks
