Over the years a number of shops and trades have grown up in and around Spencers Wood.

We have begun to collect information and photographs on how this has changed from the horse cart delivering the milk to the Society for Microbiology (now boarded up with planning application pending).

Some of these are listed below – please email us if you can add to this list and better still, come and talk to us if you’ve worked there.
