Built in 1858, it was sold to Woolworth in the 1930s. With the money from the Sale, they built a new Chapel on Whetstone Lane in 1939.

....and here's the Baptist Chapel

That's an excellent picture, uptoncx - I've never seen it before and it brings back lots of memories. The only thing I can recall about Woodson's is that it used to have one of those old overhead vacuum tube systems for sending documents around the store - presumably customers' orders and such - and it fascinated me as a child. As for other shops in Grange Road, there was a place called Llewellyn's, further down towards the town centre on the right-hand side just past St Werburgh's Church, which I think sold motor scooters. Next door to Llewellyn's, at the junction with Argyle Street and opposite the George and Dragon Pub, was a tobacconist's shop.

...The tobacconist was more or less next to the George and Dragon and then in that little stretch of shops there was a shop that sold leather belts, bags etc. Going back into grange rd there was a furniture shop called Woodhouse and Cavendish. Rostances (not sure if that's spelt correct) in oxton rd had the vacuum system as well for sending money to the cash dept.
