Liddiard's Shop

c. 1922

High Street

Liddiard’s shop sold everything you could think of. You could go and get two penn’orth of nails or you could go and get a gallon of paraffin and a pound of butter all over the same counter.

They used to come round with a trade bike and take orders and then bring the goods to you, so it was a lot different from going to Tesco. They had a bicycle with a square frame at the front and you could stand a few boxes of stuff in it, but not a lot.

Keith Jacklin, speaking in May 2007
