Archive Notes:

Mrs Life had had a draper's shop, but was not trading as this in 1921 although she and her huband still lived here. Later, Dora Pope had a grocery shop. Then by 1935, Peter and Frances Walde had taken this over as a general stores. Later (in 1946) they were a radio specialist and sold photographic items as well and had a car hire and taxi service. In 1966 the taxi service was sold to Ray Bushnell who kept the name Walde, but they were never partners. In the 1980s, it was a shop run by Green. In 1988, The Wool Shop had the left hand part of this shop but, by 1998, they had taken over the main shop and Country Collections (an antique and collectibles business) were in the small left-hand part (having taken this in 1996). The Wool shop closed down c. 1998 or 1999 and Country collections moved into the larger shop with a barber taking over the smaller one. later Country Collections took over the whole shop. It is now (2018)  Country Collections with Identity Hair occupying the small shop on the left.
