Those early Victorian shops in our High Street – you know, nos. 46 and 48, The Chocolate Shop and what until recently was a little fashion boutique. Well, their top floor needed attention – not surprising at their age – and permission was granted to renovate it so long as the building would be returned “as was”.
Work is now under way – and all Wanstead will be watching. Those little shops are pretty to look at and a significant reminder of Wanstead’s picturesque past.
We look forward to their presence for many more years.
