The Shopkeeper: One giant of a painting

My shop, The Papershop, is on the Market Place in Market Weighton: down the side of the shop, in Goodmanham Road, is a large boulder that looks totally out of place!

Customers have been asking about it for the ten years I’ve been here and now the Market Weighton Town Team has commissioned a life-size painting of William Bradley, the Giant of Yorkshire carrying the boulder for a bet.

As I’ve said to many a customer, if you can pick up the boulder without help you can keep it!.

Full story in this week’s (2 October) Pocklington Post.
