4. The Venture In

Ombersley’s tradesmen included a tailor, Frank Jukes, who had arrived in the village from Bolton, Lancashire, his wife from Newcastle upon Tyne and their infant daughter, born in Ombersley in 1909. The family lived in the house now known as Venture between 1908 to 192. No further record has been found of their residence in the village.
Local anecdote describes the sight of the tailor working corss-legged in the bay window, the better to take advantage of the light while he sewed.
