In today’s post, we like to give special mention to Ron Cowen of York, the kind benefactor of a lovely Mouseman Bench to Darlington Railway station.
Mr Cowen who’s son served with the Yorkshire Regiment 1st Battalion at Catterick Garrison had the piece commissioned by Robert Mouseman Thompsons Craftsmen Ltd from Kilburn, North Yorkshire.
The bench now takes pride of place at Darlington railway station on platform 1 and is the perfect place for our travelling troops to await their trains.
We love finding pieces of Mouseman history around the Barnard Castle area. If you know of any, or indeed amazing pieces from other craftsman – please get in touch! We’re always keen to learn about the history of these great craftsmen!
