104, 105 and 106 North Street, which faced downhill towards the Clock Tower, were three of the oldest houses in the town.

They were built in the latter part of the eighteenth century. Originally all three had the attic room, the extra storey of 106 being added in recent times.

Demolished in 1955. Three tiny ancient flint cottages, 101, 102 and 103, previously stood hidden from view in the space behind these houses, adjoining Haselgrove’s smithy.

Any idea why it shifted from North Street to Dyke Road – and when?

Love this thread. The Bush sign on the right denotes the shop where I bought my first real stereo system. A Bush Arena HiFi with Garrard SP25 Mk2 turntable and Bush branded speakers that were actually Wharfedales. Loved that set up and wish I still had it. Although I had an LP collection at the time, I bought 'The Smoker you Drink, the Player you Get by Joe Walsh to christen it. This picture sent me happily down a rabbit hole looking up Bush Arena HiFi.
