TF1963 : The world's smallest shoe shop (perhaps!)

taken 9 years ago, near to Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire, Great Britain

The world's smallest shoe shop (perhaps!)
The world's smallest shoe shop (perhaps!)
This interesting building stands at one end of the old shopping parade on the Broadway in the former spa town of Woodhall Spa.

When Woodhall Spa had its own railway station, the shop was a booking office and was the last building on the platform before the railway line diagonally bisected the Broadway. This explains its unusual shape which is only 3 feet deep at one end and led to the property being known as the 'Woodhall Wedge'. During its life, the shop has seen service as a bicycle shop, an electrical retailers, a jewellers, and even a Bank.

Now allegedly the world's smallest shoe shop, customers have to view the displays in 'single file' at this end of the shop! Much of the stock is necessarily kept in an adjoining building.
