Lippiatt's was between the firestation and the Lantern Stores, just on the left as you turn out of Chiltern Hill. Part of what is now a row of cottages.

Ryder's the undertaker
Husseys builder merchants
Ray Holt the sign writer
Bestway removals
Pocock, Ryder to name two of many plumbers
Redge Woods roofer


 
A few of these were in the list in Names from the Past some weren't so I've updated the list.
 
Franklin's coal I think was on the corner of Austin Wood Close, on the left as you turned in, his wife used to breed pugs.

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.

Remember the milk bar well. Had a juke box and pyrex cups and saucers.
Was there a milk bar at the bottom of the hill opposite where the cinema and toilets used to be ?
