28 Gardner Street
28 Gardner Street
Originally a separate building, since 1996 it has been part of The Dorset, originally a bar that has by and large converted itself into a restaurant. The former pub stands on the corner of Gardner Street and North Road and is officially in the latter and probably dates from the 1870s when North Road was widened and neighbouring slums demolished. Needless to say E Boucher has traded from here along with TQ3104 : 23 Gardner Street,TQ3104 : 24 Gardner Street,TQ3104 : 25 Gardner Street,TQ3104 : 26 Gardner Street, TQ3104 : 27 Gardner Street and TQ3104 : 32 Gardner Street whilst for ten years it was shop serving the remaining fishing community in the area. After the Fieldings a number of other businesses come and go until the First World War when the tremendously named Mrs Cleopatra Fielding opened a tobacconist which would continue trading under her successor, George King until the mid 1960s. After that came a couple of electrical goods shops, one specialising in components the other the last resting place of Marina Electrics by then specialising in lighting, having started in TQ3104 : 15 Gardner Street.
