by David Twitchet

The Slipped Discs building, formerly Smith’s butchers shop and Billericay ‘s late lamented bookshop, Storyteller. Here are some examples through the ages. In the early views it will be seen that a gated arch provided access to the rear of the building for (butcher’s?) carts. If one steps inside the building today two large timber posts will be found supporting a beam, These were formerly part of the outside walls either side of the arch when the property was two cottages.
