The Old Stores / Old Stores House, Arthur Street, Montgomery
The Old Stores / Old Stores House, Arthur Street, Montgomery
A substantial Georgian town house built in 1775 for a Mr Price Jones. By 1839 this had been partially converted into a shop, with the addition of the lean to on the left hand side, the shop door, and shop window. There is also a rear wing facing on to what was the old market place, contiguous with the lean to. This is now a separate dwelling.

By 1900 the shop was a general store run by David Proctor, later a newsagents. It reverted to being a private dwelling in the 1990s. This appears to have still been the case when Google's Streeview car passed in 2010. Since that time part has once again become a shop, this time as an upmarket antiques and interior design shop, reflecting the gentrification that appears to have taken hold throughout the town.

When this photo was taken building work was being carried out in front of the cottage at the side. This had previously been a paved parking area.
