Sandy Way looking towards Town Street (The Steep), the fish and chip shop on the left was then the business of Arnie Clapham, it now claims to be “the oldest fish and chip shop in the world” (August 2014).
In the centre the old buildings have been replaced by newer dwellings, the shop on the right still stands(August 2014).
Photographer James Farrar donated by his son David.

Editor’s Note: Arnie Clapham was a motorcyclist enthusiast and directly behind and below his Fish & Chip shop he had a storage building in which he kept an array of old British motorbikes, a Scott, Brough Superior, BSA, Triumph, AJS, Matchless and a Velocette allegedly ridden by Freddie Frith at the Isle of Man TT. I used to visit him with my dad in my teens and I often wonder what became of all those magnificent bikes. JB. May 2021.

For many years White’s premises had been a newspaper distribution centre, this was at a time when newspapers sold extensively and the distribution area covered outlying districts. This green door led to a flat above a shop property which was adjacent to White’s on the right, the shop had been Mimi’s ladies dress shop.

Shop premises at the corner of Sandy Way and Town Street (Steep), this had once been Mimi’s dress shop before J C White & Co converted it and incorporated it into their business premises, it had been empty for many years.
The flat which had been situated above Mimi’s was extended to continue above White’s adjoining property. The business now has a streamlined frontage with no doorway or step down, the old shop front now has a different appearance.

When I was a child in the 50s, the chip shop was always known as ‘Arnie’s’ as it belonged to Arnie Clapham. The chip shop up the high street was known as Clapham‘s or Connie’s. Connie was Arnie’s sister.
