Bannisters must have closed after I left Newhaven in 1986

I closed this shop in 1986, the last of 14 shops that my family had in the High Street over the years. The High St. being known as the staircase as it had Bannisters on both sides.

The Bannister Dynasty must have closed down in the 1980s. I and my father worked for the builders run by Clayton Lee Bannister. Dad worked in the office; I was a carpenter. I left in 1968, by then the company had relocated to the Quarry at the end of Fort Road and set up a company called "Nainshouse" making packing cases as well as the building side. Dad was made redundant in the mid 1980s, Clayton Bannister's son Christopher was running the company by then, he closed the firm down and went farming I believe. Dad went to work for Bull's on the North Key, then later "C H Seymours" in Seaford.
