Belmont House to Boots

Posted on Aug 17, 2014 by in Then & now, Town Centre | 0 comments

Totally unrecognisable today from the same site one hundred years before, the building which houses Boots and the Lucky Kiss, started life as the residential Belmont House. This became a boarding establishment and then Petherick’s china and book shop in the middle years of the twentieth century. At the end of the century the old building was demolished to make way for a new International Stores, which moved from the Underwood’s store next door and was later taken over by Boots.
