The Search For The Well
When we first took over the building, the basement was a very damp and dreary place! Our very kind neighbours at the post office told us that at some stage we had a well. This is how the search for the well began. We researched old planning documents at the council that indicated approximately where the well used to be.
Further investigation with friends & a sledge hammer made a remarkeable discovery under 12 inches of damp concrete!

We received the keys to the shop in June 2010
It took a total of 14 months of investigative works, planning & consultation before we received listed building consent and we began the refurbishment in earnest.
We finally reached the completion of the refurbishment works ready for an opening to the public on Thursday 24th November 2011.
