Ernest Ben Newson - Bakers
From 1944, the Newson family even run a bread round
to Walberswick - using child power rather than pony
power. Winnie, Ben (junior, known as Bennie) and Audrey may regularly be seen
pushing their hand cart loaded with loaves, over the
Common, following the old railway cutting, across
the Bailey Bridge and down into Walberswick village.
Winnie and Audrey develop a separate
trade of their own – in sweets – which they
sell at 4 for a penny from a tray at the corner of
the shop. Winnie is popularly known as 'Penny' Newson.
