Noticed today that Carlton Hardware Ltd, a single storey shop on Carlton Hill (opposite Ladbrokes), has been demolished and they have dug footings for a new building.  Is that the place that used to be the Black and Decker shop back in the day (say 1970s)?  I remember getting brushes and bearings to keep an 'old faithful' drill going.

I had a couple of Black and Decker drill that burnt out and in the end bought a BD ‘professional’ hammer drill from the Carlton shop over 40 years ago. It been heavily used and never missed a beat.
