This splendid new building is Berrycroft Stores in the 1930s, very different from the building we know today. Sadly, the building was short lived as it caught fire and was completely gutted a few years later. The building we see today was put up in its place and its slightly odd box-like shape is due to war-time restrictions which made building materials scarce. The smaller building on the left escaped the fire and is still there today – although completely boarded up.
