You are correct as usual, Alan,

The slaughter house was approached from the side of the shop and when Wild's went to the new shop on Old Road access to the slaughter house was via Old Road.

The building has had many uses since but my favourite was the off licence.
Brian Cotterill extended it up and made it into a house.

Now you are talking builders; there were so many excellent masons in this area. Wilf Lockett was another.

You are right there R.S-S. Brian Cottrell served his time alongside me with E.A.Boothby. A.B.
