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. Now in 2019 a major rebuild is almost finished, creating two separate houses from the shop and the blacksmith's premises. In the process the smithy doors and the shopfront have been removed, taking the property back to an approximation of the original.
