This block was known as "Springfield", with shops each end and a house between them. The shop on the right of the photo started as John Rogers' butcher's and appears on p.66 of the "Buckley" photograph book with a wrong caption. Later the house and shop belonged to Mr J. Skillicorn, grocer. The shop at the left of the block was Beattie's footwear shop before becoming a petfood store.


The stone on the left hand side states: Buckley Memorials. The business has moved (3.2004) from Lane End to one of the industrial estates in Buckley.
