Voices of Hickling: Lawson Cottage
Hickling “Voice” David Osborne’s parents moved to Hickling in 1939, and they took over the newsagents shop in Stubb Road.
David’s father, Ralph, was also a basket maker. This work had to take a back seat to running the shop, but he still carried on making baskets in the outbuildings behind the shop.
No longer a shop, Osborne’s is now a bed and breakfast business known as Lawson Cottage (left).
We are actively looking for pictures of Lawson Cottage in its earlier life as a shop: if you have any
that you would be happy for us to use, please drop us an email. Thank you.
