Mrs Life had had a draper's shop, followed by Dora Pope with a grocery shop. Then by 1935, Peter and Frances Walde had taken this over as a general stores. Later they sold photographic items as well and had a 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.
