LETTER: Looking back at Littlehampton

I was fascinated to look at the nostalgia page of the Gazette and see Littlehampton town centre as I knew it in the 1960s and '70s.

It was fascinating to see the variety of shops in Littlehampton town centre which I remember well.

Caffyns the traditional butchers, Gamleys toy shop, and Ockendens ironmongers were well-known businesses.

I also remember Bradleys clothes shop in Beach Road, which sold school uniforms and lots of children’ clothes.

Taylors was a popular grocers store in Surrey street and the Taylors Dairy in Wick.

Thanks go to Tyndall Jones and the team who researched this and came up with such a comprehensive history of the town centre retail stores.
