Lost shops of Litton

Arthur Barnsley recalls the ‘lost’ shops of Litton village.

“Shops. We had the co-op it was Stafford Hill I think it was called who ran it at that time, the manager. He came round and took orders and delivered them and then there was the post office and I think it was Hancocks were there for a while as well. Then there was the Post Office also sold sweets Then there was a shop across the road, Mrs Moors and Hicks How it camed to be called I dunno, she was always referred to as a halfpenny of aniseed balls! Well wherever people would deliver orders. You would get lads. Quite often got a lad to come and buy and he would get us some. At Christmas he might get a couple of bob, which would be a big amount then. Papers were delivered to Chapman’s and Warrington’s, they both delivered papers daily.
