Bude station in January 1938, with the Falcon horse bus, driven by Mac Sharrock – and pulled by Snowball!


  1. I was delighted to see this picture of my grandfather as it is the only one I have ever seen.Many thanks

    • Pleasure!

    • My great grandad was called Francis Sharrock from Bude in Cornwall. I understand he was related to the man in the picture, your grandfather.

      • Thanks for replying .Can you let me know your grandmother name. Thanks

    • I have a copy of newspaper obit of Mattie Sharrock if you’re interested.

      • That would be great to see, if you don’t mind sharing. Thank you.

  2. I thought that a Sharrock drove four horses from Bude?
