Bridge Street, the old building was late 17th or early 18th Century. Look carefully at the corner stone-work and upper windows, the shell of the building remains although the pitched roof has gone. Prior to being used by West End DIY this building used to be the town's Woolworths Store. Woolworths subsequently moved to premises in Crown Street at the north end of Bridge Street.
