The former Burton's the tailors store
The former Burton's the tailors store
Grade II listed. CADW Source ID: 83477.
Dated 1938 and purpose-built as a Burton's tailors store in their characteristic Art Deco house style.
It bears a sign showing it was opened by Montague Maurice Burton (1885-1952).
In about 1932, the company established its own architectural department, which maintained the house style established by the architect Henry Wilson, who had been working for the company since 1923. In about 1937, Nathaniel Martin became chief architect, so this store is probably his work.
Now occupied by Inkwells (a stationers) and the British Red Cross charity shop.
