Part of a previously divided property. Other parts: downstairs property at 9 High St     

 

Introduction

In 1904 the gas office buildings were demolished and the building footprint extended slightly northwards. These shops (9 & 11) were built on the site.

There were two floors below the Clydesdale Bank, one used as a clubroom or hall, later a house; and one used as a van shed and storage for Young, grocer, in what is now 7 High St. All floors incorporated into one shop + stores c. 1934.

 

Commentary

'Building work is going on at the site recently purchased from the Town Council by Mr David Young … 2 commodious shops with workshops and cellarage below … architect - Thomas Cappon; builder - David Mackie; joiner - James Latto; plumbers - Betsworth & Barlow; plasterer - [William] Lawson.'
