Shops on North Street
The Redbrick building with the red door was a cycle repair shop for a large part of the twentieth century, before becoming a private house and then an accountants office. The cream brick building to its right was an insurance brokers for many years, but is currently being extensively refurbished to become yet another beauty salon. It does seem that the sale of beer and the cutting of hair will be the only retail operations in town, presumably because neither can be done by internet.

On the right the plain brick 'picture house' behind the mock tudor facade of the former Tudor cinema can be clearly seen, still with its large extractor fan. This building is a popular Cantonese restaurant.
