I remember the chip shop where The Carpenter's Arms is now very well. Best part of Edwards was the shop on Grammar School Road/Norwich Road which was great for buying sweets on the way home from school back in the late seventies/early eighties. Apparently the chip shop next to The Angel was "Anne's Fish Bar" but I don't remember it at all.

Hi There used to be 2 chip shops in 'ol Walsham'. One was was run by Annie something near to the Angel pub and the other was in what is now The Carpenters Arms opposite what was once the girls high school. Anyone remember 'Rackstraws'?!

For the person below and anyone who is interested we've have had some new information through regarding Pigney's Wood. We asked the gentleman that currently looks after the area. He said he does not know but has an old map of the area. He said the area used to be called "Pigneys Field". So we can only assume that someone "Pigney" possibly a farmer owned the land? If anyone can add to this information please do. Thanks Daryl North Walsham Guide.

Just seen the North Walsham Guide feature in the May edition of Just North Walsham and I have to say I don't know how Daryl does it for the money ;-)

Hi Andy, Before Roys had the Yarmouth Road store it was Gateway and before that it was FineFare. I can't remember whether it had changed it's name to Somerfield before it eventually moved to Mundesley/Bacton Road and finally became Sainsbury's. before all of those it was the cattle market I believe.

Hi Jim, Rounce and Wortley is no longer on Hall Lane. They were took over by Barnwells of Aylsham about ten years ago and finally closed down altogether making way for a children's play facility. I remember going for my first job interview at Rounce and Wortley in 1986!
