9. No. 145

By Jim Devlin

This building at the southern end of the High Street stood where Audit House now stands. The grocers shop was originally owned by the Moore family who were here from the early 1800’s until selling up in 1948. The building was built in the 18th Century and the double fronted shop front was installed sometime around 1900. To the left can be seen the corner of the Police Station which was built in 1938.

I remember my mother shopping at this shop. I believe it was called Pattens. The lady who ran the shop had a grandson called Stephen who lived there and went to Fryerns school. It always had the wonderful smell of coffee beans.
