Since closure, date as yet unknown, the building has been used both as a bridal store and then after 2001 a fireplace store.

The sign still shown on the building says 1891, so this must be at least the second building with that name as I have traced the name back to 1855 at present.

 

Local knowledge, further pictures, and licensee information would be appreciated.

I will be adding the historical information when I find or are sent it, but this project is a very big one, and I do not know when or where the information will come from.

All emails are answered.
