Harpenden Hiab Haulage

Family run haulage company Sussex Transport can arrange all your transport solutions, store goods in our large, secure warehouse and arrange a pick and pack service for you.

Last month we made a dedicated delivery of medical equipment for one of our customers to Harpenden Hospital in Hertfordshire with one of our fleet of HIAB vehicles.

Harpenden is a sought after town to live in, popular with commuters into London.  Home to many famous names – most notable was Eric Morecambe where he lived until his death in 1984

Eric’s last performance was in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire. After the show had ended and Morecambe had left the stage, the musicians returned and picked up their instruments. He rushed back onto the stage to join them and energetically played various instruments. He then left the stage only to return moments later. All in all, he made six curtain calls. Finally, he said “That’s your lot!”, waved to the audience, and left the stage. He walked into the wings and joked “Thank goodness that’s over.” A few moments later, Morecambe collapsed, and died of a heart attack.

In 1999 Morecambe was voted the funniest person of the 20th century in a British internet poll; Eric pulled in 26% of the votes, beating his contemporary performer Tommy Cooper and Monty Python member John Cleese to the coveted position.

Eric often referred to Harpenden in his comedy, with a band once appearing on the Morecombe and Wise show named The Harpenden Hot-Shots and in a Casanova sketch he introduced himself as Lord Eric, Fourth Duke Of Harpenden – and certain parts of Birkenhead!
