Talbot House

Talbot House

The old building was once a farm. Attached to the west gable is the outbuilding, used at one time as a village shop. It is aid to have been a cobbler's shop with Cobbler Sammy (Griffiths) and indeed some people call the yard Cobbler's Yard. Later the shop housed a small greengrocery business and farm shop, managed by Mrs. Hughes (Senior), mother of Mr. Hughes the farmer.
In its later days it was a wool shop and haberdasher's, managed by Mrs. Mabel Smith, who then lived in the largest part of the old property, for it became two residences.
