Peterborough Standard – 29th January 1916


At Peterborough Magistrates, Philip Ernest Pell, of Market Deeping, was summoned before J.H. Beeby, Esq. (chairman), the Mayor (G. Nicholls, Esq.), Dean Page, Major Leeds, J.W. Williamson, J.T. Miller, W.G. Moore, W. Kemp, O. Edmonds, and G.S. Palmer, Esqs., charged with riding a bicycle on the footpath, Northborough, on the 17th January. Philip pleaded guilty “under extenuating circumstances.”

P.c. Mayes said Philip told him he was there because the road was rough.

Philip said he had been delivering papers, and rode about 15 yards on the footpath to avoid a drop of nine inches onto the roadway, which had been freshly stoned, and would probably have resulted in a puncture. Since then he had kept more to the roadway and had had three punctures.

The Chairman: It is a pity the Chairman of the Peterborough Rural District Council has gone.

Supt. Slaughter produced a petition from the inhabitants of Northborough, protesting against the state of the roads.

The Chairman: It is unfortunate Mr. Kemp has gone.

Philip was fined 2s. 6d.
