6 Kingsway Parade
206 London Road, Hadleigh
The terrace used to bear the date 1935, presumably when it was built.
The earliest history of this later divided shop unit is presently unknown.
In 1937, Geoff Choppen ran a ladies hairdressers at number 6 with Howard W Sutton, a wireless supplies dealer at 6A.
The entries in the 1939 Register for 6 remain closed, but Harold, a gas fitter, and Adeline Dibble were at 6A.
In the 1950s, Percy Worpole and his son, John sold sanitary ware seconds as Ware Traders at 6 Kingsway Parade.
In 1964, a postcard appears to show the name “CRAFTS” over number 6 and toys can be seen on the forecourt.
In more recent times, it became subdivided with Moore’s Shoe Repairs for many years on the left hand side and The Knitting Emporium on the right.
By 2019, it had become Toast Tanning and the Nail Lounge.
