  • Cox’s was the butchers. Frank the butcher and my friend and I at 14/15 had a terrible crush on the young trainee ‘Fred’. Those were the days.

  • The barber always put a plank on the chair arms for me to sit on while he cut my hair, I hated it. The Gamekeeper off-licence served kids with bottles of beer for their dad’s and penny packets of peanuts.

  • I lived in Bedwell from 1952 and I was trying to remember all the shops that have been there. Co-op, Hardware, Electrical, Butcher, chemist, Shoe shop, Green grocers, Hairdressers and barber (good place to put a bet on) fish and chips and dont forget Cowleys, with the post office and the Cig machines outside. Hows your memory Valerie.

  • Could this be the only area of Stevenage that effectively got ‘de-pedestrianised’?

  • On Sundays at the shops we always watched the morris dancers. The shops were Fine-Fare, diy shop, fish shop(still the best in Stevenage), butchers, greengrocers, hairdressers and shoe shop and the pub was called the Gamekeeper.
