Demolition next to the Co-op

We have seen, before, the Market Place as it was before 1960. Here we see a transitional image.

New housing has replaced the former maltings, derelict housing and the fire station which had formerly occupied the area behind the telephone box.

The telephone box itself has now gone – moved to Lamb Corner, the crossroads by the Post Office.

And here we see the building next to the Co-op under demolition in the early 1960s. It still remains a vacant plot.

Chatting by demolition rubble - no safety barriers in those days

Two local men are having a chat. Maybe somebody will recognise them.
