Used to catch the bus from my grandparents on Manor Park Crescent (2p into town) and go there & buy my 'clockhouse' clothes & plastic jewellery in the 80's.......... :rolleyes:

As far as I am aware C&A is no longer, anywhere !!

Not in the UK, but still exists on the continent (http://www.c-and-a.com/). |They are a Dutch company.

A few shops had access from below ground not sure about C&A

Walshes did, so did the one on the corner of Angel St / High St (cannot recall the name)

Me dad is reading this with me and chirpin in saying that there was a thorntons kiosk,a place called horns which was a clothes shop,YEB shop,a corkers fruit & veg,i remember a GT news before ramp exiting towards house of fraiser all on lower level,but yeah bad memories of getting dragged round C&A as a youth it must have been most boring place for a young child nothing to do while parents were bleeding every last minute of looking for clothes mainly farahs etc,still remember them big round spinning indiscrete("sorry about spelling")cameras which hung down from roof about 2ft with big amber light on bottom,i think anyone who wanted to steal had more chance by just standing in the shadow they cast
