Contracting Means Expanding

So read a headline in a 1981 issue of the Wiltshire Gazette which was about Clem Bowyer. Clem ran an agricultural contracting business from premises on Drove Lane in Market Lavington.


The article tells us something of the life of former local resident, Clem Bowyer who moved to the area from Bradford on Avon in 1928.

Let’s read the article first.




The article had a photo of Clem back in pre-war days.


Clem was born in 1916 and from 1928 until his death in 1995 he lived in the Lavington/Easterton area

It would be good if anyone could offer us a better photo of Clem.
