Point of Interest Details

Wilson’s Hardware Store

Gerald Wilson’s ironmongers shop at No.84 High Street is perhaps the only example in the town of a retail business that has consistently grown and developed since it moved into Olney High Street in the 1970s. Although it has a modest frontage in terms of width, inside the visitor is reminded of Dr Who’s ‘Tardis’, as the retail area extends progressively rearwards through a series of sales areas filled with all manner of household goods.

In earlier days (c.1930s – 1970s) the shop was a licensed grocery business owned by the Abrams and then the Riddy families.

Walk about another 100 metres further down the street to No. 100 High Street.
