No. Just, No

The village shop in Higher Cloughfold has recently changed hands and the new owners have done some renovations. Now the old frontage was a bit scruffy and the window dressing left a lot to be desired but in general it was in keeping with the look of the village:

The new one is totally out of character…

…but I suppose we will get used to it. However they have managed to move the doorstep over the manhole cover which grants access to the cellar - hope they never have to use it.
