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

This shop has physically gone now, as well as several others on both sides of the road - in order to accommodate that architectural gem "The Sir John Hawkins Flyover".

I do remember West One as one of my friends had very thin legs and he wore skin tight trousers to match but he had to lie on the floor in the middle of the shop to pull the fly zip up.......you can imagine everyone falling around laughing.

Before 1973 it was Hawkins the drapers shop and we used to go to Samsons Mens Wear at number 142 next to the bank, this was mid 60's.

Who remembers West one? Or should I say - WEST ONE!
