James Turner’s sons divided their business. 

One kept the grocery business in the original shop. The other took the Post Office and drapery and built this across the road. 

By 1970 it was owned by G.E. Gotts and sold stationery, drapery, rugs and wellingtons etc as well as being the Post Office.

The gallery housed various businesses including an art gallery, greengrocers and charity shop before being converted into flats.
