News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Sadly this shop has had to close for good, as far as I know. The Salvation Army has had their charity shop in three different places, the hair dressers on the opposite side of the road, before they moved here.  I also saw a photo of the charity shop when it was next to The  Nationwide Building Society in the High St.
Another use for the shop was Pope's photographers.

My photo.
