At top of Welby was a grocers. opposite that was the bakery which was next door to kitty cat Florie, she had loads of cats as pets. on other side to bakery was a hardware shop. Another grocers shop was on Norton Lees Rd just round corner from Pearson. Opposite to beer-off nearly was Azellwood's garage/Baptist Ch that fell down after heavy snow 2014
