There was a small shop at each end of this row of terraced houses. The shop nearest the junction of Shore Road and Calderbrook Road was known by me as the "Top Shop", the one at the other end of the row, near the Dyers Arms pub, was the "Bottom Shop".

Python mill was known locally as the silk mill.The open area at the rear of the mill was originally the tenterground where frames were set up to dry the cloth or make it even or square.The hooks holding the cloth were called tenterhooks.Hence the saying "on tenterhooks"
