East Street 88-89

Residential

This double fronted red brick property probably dates from in the mid-19thC. The photo shows it in 2001 when it was still Diaper's shoe shop - a family business dating back to the 1920s when the large shop window was probably inserted. The double doors at the side indicate a previous use as a smithy - Frederick Kemp was the blacksmith in 1908. (Currently the property is covered in scaffolding behind which a major rebuild is going on which will probably preserve little of the original apart from the frontage. June 2018)
