Church Street Junction with Field Lane

52 Church Street

This sketch illustrates a building which is today (2017) a home to a Pharmacy located opposite the Holy Trinity Primary School on Church Street. The sketch illustrates the building as once it was at the junction of Church Street and Field Lane. It shows Harry Thomas’ Corn merchant’s business, but the signage indicates that Harry sold much more than just corn.

Next door stands Gatenby’s Fish and Chip Shop with Scorah’s Boot Repairers occupying the far end of the building. Sadly the gatepost which stood adjacent to Scorah’s is no more and is replaced by the Bus Stop, which has been moved, ever so slightly, from its earlier position that is also shown in the sketch.
