It's a free country, adopt whatever PC stance you want. Just don't tell me which stance I should take just because it clashes with your opinion.

Just been reading all the names of old shops that used to be in C st P. 
I now have to add my family's little grocery shop - GLYNN'S - that is now the Chinese takeaway on Gold Hill North. My great great grandfather built that shop and it started out as a tobacconists.
Also no one has mentioned the stationers shop - HOUSE'S.

The fire station was set back from the frontage of The Lanterm & Lippiatts, just to the left of what is 11 Lower Road, the doors to the fire station were down a slope from the road and the siren was on the left hand side at the bottom of the slope.

I think Mr, Birch. the caretaker at the school was a volunteer. he lived around half way between the "Bakers Arms" and Beesons.
[/QUOTE]
 
He lived at 5 High Street. He was also the first lollipop man in the village , probably in about 1955, he lollipoped(!) the High Street roughly where the HSBC is today, across to the Church Lane side of the bottom of the Market Place.
