The Little Craft Shop, North Eastern Gas Board etc. at 44 Burgate, Pickering, Yorkshire
The Little Craft Shop, North Eastern Gas Board etc. at 44 Burgate, Pickering, Yorkshire
This building is located on the corner of Market Place and Burgate. It is a Grade II listed building dating from the 18th century with later alterations. The shop fronts are 19th century. The listing refers to Nos. 41, 42 and 44 Burgate but only the part known as 44 is shown in this photograph. It also corrects the original listing which referred to them all as no. 40. Possibly this had been a mistake or perhaps the building was re-numbered at some point. Today no 40 is an adjacent building occupied by a firm of estate agents.

When this photograph was taken, around 1962, the premises were occupied by the Little Craft Shop on the ground floor. On the first floor were offices of the North Eastern Gas Board (then a nationalised utility) and by Edgar Allen, a Chartered Architect and Surveyor. Today the ground floor, at least, is occupied by a charity shop run by Tia Greyhound Rescue. The bench seats outside have been removed. There are a number of recent views of this area including this one by Dennis Turner:- SE7984 : Burgate.

Unfortunately the original 6cm x 6cm negative no longer appears to exist, so the photograph has had to be scanned from a contact size print.
