Gregg Earle recently got in touch in relation to a row of shops that would, today stand between the Sainsbury’s car park at Eastfield and the main Oxney Road. Gregg added, “after looking through the images of the Eastfield / Newark area of Peterborough, I couldn’t find any of where I lived in Oxney Road, Newark, Peterborough. My father owned a shop there, called Pells Stores, which sat opposite the old school. I have managed to find one picture of the shop, although quite grainy, dating back to approx 1978.”
The 1970s map at the bottom shows the row of shops but if you have any more information or recollections of this long lost location, please get in touch.
