Workers travelled there by many means, walking, push bike, scooter, motor bike, car or van and with quite a big workforce, there were 3 or 4 car parks at Banner Lane. Nothing strange about that, until one day the shout went out to "come and look at this" and there coming up the drive was a guy called John Habberley on his horse. He parked it around the back tethered to the fence, with a feed bag and bucket of water. Don't know what was said to him, but he never rode it to work again. I think that John went on to keep an antique shop?
