View of the shop at the bottom of Friday Lane, looking west along High Street.

After The Chequers had closed as a pub, it was run as a shop from 1926 by Mrs Sally Keen (nee Gomm) selling groceries and sweets. Later n the 1940s and/or 1950s, it was a sweet shop run by Bob Green.  Later it was run by Mary Blake and Percy Blake until after 1965 when these became houses (Gomm family lived in one of these)- see record 1799 which shows the shop still trading as Blakes in 1965.

See record 298 for more detail.
