Chemist.White & Miller Butchers. Trotters. The Unicorn Public House. Mr Jim Kilby's Blacksmith Shop. Terrett Taylor & Co Ironmongers. W Mundy Hairdresser and Tobacconist. Solicitor ?. General Post Office. R.J.Adams Painter & Dec.Behind the High St shops can be seen Dr J Battle's garden at The Marshes where the St John,s Church Fetes were held for many years.The builders yard at Terrett Taylors stretches right back to the railway station.The four shops in the middle right of the picture in Market Place are Birts Stores.
