Photo of Mrs Dungey outside her grocer's shop in 1910 with sons Bob and Bernard, both went to Australia. Also photo of house in 2003.

Believed to have been built in 1770. This property traded as two shops, one being used by Mitchell of Mitcheldene. By 1900, this shop was in the hands of the Dungey family as a general store ‘always open up to midnight’. The other shop belonged to Joseph Frampton who was a farmer, cooper and quarryman and who owned the quarry pits where the recreation ground and Templars Close now stand. He sold wooden buckets and other such items and was one of the last to wear a smock for which Wheatley was well-known - see record 2639.

Listing details state 'Cottage pair. Mid C18. Limestone rubble and squared quoins with timber lintels; old plain-tile roof. Single unit rear outshut plan. 2 storeys. 4-window front had, to each cottage, and 3-light casement to left of the entrance with 3-light casements at first floor, with openings at each floor linked by moulded lintels. Ground floor of left cottage now has blocked door and C20 casement, but C18 leaded casements survive elsewhere. Most windows have brick quoins. Stack to left of each cottage.

The Dungey family were still trading here in the 1930s.
