On the corner of Hill Road and Crossways Road the building started life as the Capital and Counties Bank in about 1904, being the first bank in Grayshott. After moving to Headley Raod in 1924 (now Lloyds bank) the premises became a stationers and library, this image dates from the late 1920s and it remained as such into the 1960s. Various changes subsequently, at present Liphook Valet Service.

Photo of the Winchester Vulcan

Following the recent death of Derek (Walt.) Winchester this picture was thought appropiate. His uncle Walter Winchester started a coal and grain merchants business in Grayshott in the late 1920s based in Glen Road and later with a shop in Crossways Road (February 2013 'Everbodys' Beauty'), the business continuing until the early 1960s. Starting with a variety of second hand lorries by good fortune three of these after commercial use were kept inside the Glen Road premises and survived until 1954 when purchased for preservation by Portsmouth commercial vehicle dealer Jack Sparshatt and therefore ensuring their survival to the present day. Illustrated here is the 1916 Vulcan van attending an early historic commercial vehicle rally in the late 1950s when in Sparshatt ownership. The lorry had started life with Kinghams, provision merchants at Farnham before arriving at Grayshott for further use.
