The Butchers shop

By Norman Phillips

Between 1861 and 1871 William Kitchener Jr opened a butchers shop in Mill St. At the age of 73, in 1883, he passed away and George Bryant took over the shop. He passed the shop on to his son, Arthur Bryant. Unfortunately he committed suicide in 1920 and the shop was bought by Mark V Crump. Mark ran the shop until 1954 when his son Philip (Phil) took over.

Phil retired in 1989, his two sons, Jonathan and David running the business. Jonathan is still running the shop now.
