Three Photos of Inside of Knightswick Centre

Dated 1979/80

By Janet Penn

Three photos taken soon after the Knightswick Centre was opened. Some shops are still empty. At that time the Supermarket was Key Markets and they also had a café on the left as you entered from Furtherwick Road.

Can you remember some of the shops that were in the precinct in the early years? Please comment below.

Key Markets was where Boots now is. The shop to the left of it was Peachey's greengrocers (now a slot machine place). Trevia Avenue ran beside Peachey's.

Tescos was opposite in what is now Superdrug. Our first 'supermarket' was Maypoles where the Halifax now is.

The first Keymarket Supermarket was in Oak road opposite Claxtons' furniture store.

As I recall, Key markets at Oak Road was originally "Greens" Supermarket, which evolved from Green and Dyson grocery store which operated on the same corner.

Pollards took over the Greens stores site. If I remember correctly Sketchley Dry Cleaners took over the Key market site
