Number 131 High Street was the ironmongery of John Natrass from 1895 to 1906.
In 1908 an advert by R. H. Carter declares he was "successor to John Nattrass".
It was the premises of Alfred Gray's builders' merchants in the 1930s.
In the 1960s the upstairs was Thomas' hairdressing salon, and
Barry Thomas, son of the proprietor, ran a newsagency on the ground floor.
