Bottom of Holme Road

2. The bottom of Holme Road, looking towards the Midland Hotel and the bridge that leads to
Matlock Bath Station, photographed in September 2008.
The archway next to the house with the green door leads to what was the former lock up[1]. On the right, at the very bottom, was a drapers. Next to it is a single storey shop that was for many years a butchers. The Hardy family were here and in the 1950s it was run by Mr. Carline. On the right of the railings is a short driveway that bends round towards what used to be the entrance of a snooker club. It was also led to the former workshop of Frank Clay, the web mistress's father, and where the many set pieces for Matlock Bath's Venetian Fête and Illuminations were produced in the 1950s[2]. The building (not shown) has been converted and is now a private home.

This was Hooton's shop

3. The former Hooton's shop on the corner of Holme Road and Brunswood Road.
Although this is now used as a store this used to be a greengrocers and,
for many years, it was run by Mrs. Hooton. She used to sit outside on sunny days.
