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

It was an independent store for a long time but was taken over by Farringdon Records, a London firm. It closed when they went out of business. I noticed the other month that Crowthers have set up a classical recording section in their shop in the Borough, Canterbury.  As to dates, I was certainly remember buying recordings at the Classical Longplayer in the eighties and I think it was well established then.

I remember buying records in this shop in the 1970s, I do not know when it opened, any ideas?

It's closed now and has been for sometime, did they move?
