Mr & Mrs Gale outside butcher's shop

Mr & Mrs William Gale outside the butchers C. 1920 Grove Road led to the 'Grove', home of and

centre of Richard Roberts' flax operations. It was also the site of the butcher's shop - here run by

W. Gale, whose descendants still live close by. The squealing and bellowing of animals being

slaughtered has been replaced by an elegant calm.
