Some may wonder why the High Street is so named when there are today no shops here. Of course there was a time when this street was lined with shops including the Co Op.

1980’s until the current day.

When Geerings closed, 34 High Street was purchased by Wye College and became a residence for students.

Later it was sold and became a private property  again. The shop then took on a chequered life and became a work shop and showroom for a potter, a bridal gown showroom and two different types of book shop.

It is now totally a private residence.
