Was it "Lewis's"?

I used to go there every so often as a boy and for 3d. the butcher would allow me to fill a carrier bag of sawdust for my quinea pig hutch! I think the flats are the original building, converted into flats perhaps.

any one remember when there was a old butchers here? before the new flats were built? a few years a go my friend nick lived in that ground  floor flat, just in side the door is a hatch in the floor, underneath is a big open space with the remains of what looks like the old cellar? and in the road out side if u look, is a  metal grid buried in the tarmac. i remember the butchers open and all the joints of meat hanging up. i also remember the place derelict for many years, then seeboard breaking in to remove the meter for some reason? and leaving the place unsecured then years later been demolished? i wander what it was call?
