Shopping in Potton

1982 , Potton (Bedfordshire)

A shopping trip highlights local businesses in a Bedfordshire parish town.

A young woman sets out from a house in the Judith Gardens estate, embarking on a shopping trip in the Bedfordshire parish town of Potton. Passing St Mary's Church, she wanders down the tranquil Church Causeway and out onto busy King Street, arriving at her first destination, Lindsay's Bakery on the edge of Market Square. Further around the Square, she visits Tysoe & Son (General Ironmongers), before walking past Frederick T. Cox (Printers and Stationers) to buy fresh produce at The Fruit Basket. Negotiating traffic, she crosses busy Market Square into Jackson the Butcher, as the 190 United Counties bus arrives to collect shoppers from further afield.
