31: Sandlant's Butcher

More detail coming soon.

Originally built by Alfred Sandlant as a butcher's shop. He supplied meat to the local townsfolk and also delivered around the district by horse and cart. He later sold the business to the Rasdell Brothers who moved the butchery to their slaughter yard, leaving the little shop empty.

It was later purchased by Mrs. Betts who gave it to "Boota", a former Indian hawker who had previously lived in a hut near Medwell's chaff mill. He conducted a barber's business from here. Following his death Mrs Goad bought the shop which remained closed for many years. In more resent times it has, periodically, been used again as a hairdressing salon.

At present it is being used for making speciality chocolates.
