Comments about this page

  • My mum, Mrs Nora North, formerly living in Waterloo Drive eynesbury, the Princes Drive, St. Neots, and lastly, Henry Street, Redcar, worked at the premises around 1958 onwards. I can remember going to the old offices where farm machinery was parked and an old street house (or two) which were converted into offices, between which there grew what appeared to me, a mere 5 year old, an enormous red fuscia bush. I am not sure how long mum worked there, but I think her boss was called Peter Ibbet, and she used to ride to work on a very old red bicycle!

  • I used to work at Ibbetts when it was a hardware shop in the 1980s
