From local paper:' OLD VALLEY CHARACTER DIES One of the Worth Valley's most popular characters has died. Stanbury farmer Vincent Whitaker, 86, lived at Rush Isles Farm near Ponden Mill, and loved to chat over the garden gate to passers-by.
Mr. Whitaker, whose wife Elizabeth died 10 years ago, lived all his life within a mile or two of the farm. "We once went to Windermere to buy a horse," recalls his son Geoffrey. "He said 'If this is Windermere, let's get home. There are a thousand stories that could be told about him."
Great-grandfather Mr. Whitaker, whose family live locally, was especially proud to have run the Oakworth district's horse and cart before the modern transport era.
