Elsie Frampton (b. 1898) and her son Alan farmed in Ashcott near Glastonbury. The Framptons ran a milk round until 1952. Using a bicycle, they delivered to customers who would come out with their jugs to be filled with milk. Elsie Frampton was given an Austin car in 1924; she learnt to drive when cars were rare on the roads in Somerset. When Elsie was younger her uncle bought her a Governess pony trap, which was made in Bristol, they brought it back to Bridgwater by train.
