Something of the history of Sharrocks Cottage As part of the old fabric of buildings along Fore Street the cottage is very old: parts of it are certainly pre-1700 but we don't know exactly how old. It features in many period photographs of the village and was a grocer's shop for many years from the 19th century until 1961. It must have been an essential part of daily life in the community.
