Highbridge farmer's name to live on at town's cattle market site
roads running through a new housing development at Highbridge's
former cattle market site are to be named after well-known residents.
cattle farmer Arthur Duckett, pictured right, who
died in 2010, will have one of the roads named after him.
Highbridge Market's manager, Maurice Wall, will also have his
name on a road at the site.
names were chosen by councillors at a meeting of the Town Council's
Planning Applications Committee on Wednesday (October 22nd).
Bill Hancock told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Arthur was a great
character who was very well known in the area. He had strong links
with the market site given all his cattle and I think it's very
fitting that he is remembered in this way."
Wall was also the main principal at the cattle market in its final
years, so it's also right that his name should continue here too
with a road name."
roads will be called Duckett Way and Wall Court and will run through
the centre of the new housing development where 59 residential
dwellings are being built next to the former Highbridge Hotel.
