I remember Hart's Exchange and Mart, (don't remember him doing M/cycle spares) and Coglans the Green Grocers from the 40s, one of the houses by the church used to manufacture window blinds or at least suply and fit, one end wall of the house had a big painted advert on it.

I bought a bike from Hart's in 1980 and I've still got it.

I went and had a look today, the house next to the Church (54) still has the large painted sign for Weeks Blinds, it must have been there since the 40s if not longer, the way the sign is written, it sounds as if the blinds were manufactured there.

I have a picture running round in my head that number 54 did have a shop front on it in the 40s so they might have manufactured the bllinds there at that time.

I remember it being fully "house-ified", it wasn't a full shop front at that time but there was some remnants which showed it was at one time. I can't remember the details but I remember being disappointed with the change.

I can imagine the building at the back of 54 was the workshop (Saint), prior to Weeks & Sons was John Brocklebank, Joiner, he died 1939, perhaps that's when the blind business moved in.

Thank's Bert, realised I'm thinking about the wrong house doh!
