Broadwalk

This rank of shops at the top of Broadwalk (where it meets the Wells Rd) is a fond memory for many local people. The newsagency and Josephine's Hair salon have been there since the 1960s at least. Our shopping habits are reflected by the changes evident from the shop fronts which today include a Polish food market and a vapor e-cigarette parlour.

The tower of the Broadwalk Shopping Centre which was built in the early 1970s is now a local landmark.
