The Old Shop
Thank you to Sam Homes, formerly of Kington Antiques & Interiors, for providing this old photograph that was given to her. It shows the main street and the shop at no. 13 as it was then.
The shop at 13 Kington St Michael was next to the Club and was one of two in the village at the time - the above photo was taken in 1989. (The other being a Post Office & shop at the corner of Stubbs Lane - look closely in the wall there and you can see where the post box used to be! That one then closed in 2003 and re-opened in part of the village hall in 2004).
After the shop above closed, no. 13 became offices, including Typegrafix printing company from around 1999 to 2004.
By 2008 it was a catering company (Baraka) and in 2011 Kington Antiques & Interiors:
In 2015 its use changed again, this time to a café. However, Folly Row Café closed in early 2020, sadly impacted by Corona virus:
