The parade of shops opposite the pub, before Beech Drive, contained two butchers shop. Cyril Jones was one, can anybody recall the name of the other butchers shop? The reason I remember Cyril Jones is he made the best pork pies in the universe. They were a tanner apiece in the late 60's early 70's. He would often stand outside his pork butchers shop. Was the other butchers a beef butchers? Mad Jack's barber shop was at the junction with Beech Drive. On the right below Malt Shovel was Walton's wet fish shop, it later became a cafe. Further down, on the right, was Grunwalls dentists.
