Short Beck
Connects Elm Tree corner to Chapel Street

1Mr Grimmer's shop looking south

The General Store in these two photos belonged to Mr Grimmer. Unfortunately it burnt down.  The Elm Tree can be seen in the background of the photo on the left and the Borough can be seen to the right of the western arm of Short Beck in the photo on the right. The people are believed to be Mrs Florence Parker some of her children (incl. Kenneth Parker, right) plus others and Aubery Palmer, apprentice grocer in the doorway.
