That is the sort of bus that we went to Europe on our school trip but instead of the solid roof line above the window line ours had skylight windows

Travelling to Forest away matches with a local coach company where the driver was a mad keen Forest fan with crates of beer in the gangway. Often used to stop in a lay-bye to water the tyres and he used to take great delight in driving off leaving twenty or so blokes in plain view of the passing traffic.

Then came the invention of the Pi**a-phone that negated the need to stop.

A slightly hazy picture of Peppers Sweet Shop.10387414-702172169880494-564233667465315

 

Much later picture than I remember. Peppers was a tiny shop set in a (most likely) Victorian building - the pictured building is relatively modern. Also, launderettes weren't invented in my time there!

Believe the shop that Mrs Pepper ran opposite the market place is now a micro pub.

Hi, I am confused. The Peppers shop in my memory was smaller than the one in the photo, had only one window and I can not remember it selling papers.My sister believes, based on the age of her daughter, the launderette has been there at least 50 years and in a recent conversation was telling me a micro brewery had set up in what was half of the Peppers shop and had recently extended into the other half.

The original Peppers sweet shop opposite the market place was pulled down in the early 1960s(?) It bore no resemblance to any building now standing.

This is the difficulty sometimes..the description is either wrong or incorrectly dated...

The shop next door to Woolworths was a Fords when I was a youngster, my next recollection of it was a Co-op supermarket before it became The Pilgrim Oak.

Fords is the shop I remember being next to Woolies. Nothing with a green door. The notable thing about Fords (to me) was that everything priced at (something) and eleven pence ha'penny
