The building is now divided in two with Spencers estate agents on one side and on the other an empty premises (with a beautiful bay window) that until recently housed Lee Johnson hairdresser.

Edwin Ackland sold books from this shop in the 1860s and 70s, being replaced by E Jackman – who lived on the premises and was a solicitor and town clerk. Herbert and Laura Heppenstall had moved into No 74 in the 1910s and at the same time set up a solicitors’ business in this building. Heppenstalls remained here until 2020.
