Ive been doing some back tracking lately about the Co-Op store i work at to find out what it used to be. Well its been a Co-Op since it was first opened ive found apicture of what used to be there and all that i can tell is that it was just a piece of land.. But what is intresting to know is that the Air Raid shelter under the store predates the CO-OP and the shop was built on top of it apparant.. Im going to do some more digging but i believe that the Shelter might be WW1 but its a big ??? so heres a picture of proposed site....

Right ive finally hit the nail on its head.. The basement which i thought was older wasnt older it was built with the Co-Operative Store on Laird Street i can know finnally put to rest what the Shop used to be.. Its always been a Co-Op but the shop had its own Butchers and Deli when it was first opened so i recon the Cellar was either used for storage of Meats or Other stuff but the Cellar was adjacent to the building outside with some of the Writing on the wall's and middle Support post im adament that the Warehouse which is Built was built as an extra thing later on but the cellar steps aways was built outside cause the Shop was smaller when it was first built.. The upstairs which is know the Gladiators Gym was a Hall called Hollybank Hall it was used for Weddings and other Partys this was converted to a Nursery in the 80's and then it was dorment for a While before the Gym took over around 2003 and since has been a Gym no special things happened to the building it Survived World War 2 and the Basement was used for an Air Raid shelter as the Back room of the Basement is surrounded by concrete when im in work next i will Take photo's of the Gym and Basement so you can get full aspect of the building.. So im know finnally happy with the outcome of the research happy *phew* smile

Hi, Just Found This Post. I Used To Work There And I Emptied All The Rubbish From The Cellar Over 25 Years Ago. It Took 2 Skips, Old Syphon Bottles, Pop Bottles And Even Old Pricing Stamps. Shaped Like Thick Felt Tip Pens With Rubber Price On The Bottom To Put In The Ink Pads. I Think I Left 2 Large False Packets Of 99 Tea There, About 2 Foot Tall. Cheers
