Hi

there was shop on each corner of the street as it met the main rd. Looking up armstead, the one on the left was an offlicene and houses went from it up towards the old chapel now knocked down on West st and also up armstead towards the coucil houses.

The one on the right I think was just general shop/barbers again houses went away from it up armstead rd and along the bottom to Orchard lane where the was another shop that was defo a general shop.

 

Sorry cant remember any names though

I helped demolish the housing around there would be back in the seventies, I was trying to remember the fella at the shops name, possibly Jack, he used to deal a bit in timber and D.I.Y.
