I remember it, but don't have any photos.
Next door to the newsagents? Or next door but one?

I've lived in the area for some time and going back to the late 60's/early 70's , I think the shops at the top of Noctorum Ave ran as follows (starting at the wool shop)
Wool shop (now a hairdresser)
Newsagent
Chip shop
Grocer's (now a sunbed place)
Chemist
Another grocer(?) - I might be wrong here but now it's a betting shop
Butcher's (Diamond's I think) now it's a video/dvd hire shop

On the corner of Coniston Ave it's been an offy for years but I don't think it was originally-maybe memory is playing tricks on me.
