Dreary & Cold

I'm not quite sure what it is with one particular abandonded shop in Worcester Park - namely Druy & Cole, next to the butchers. They were estate agents with an Abbey National desk in the corner - which just does to show what a relic the place is.

The sign on the front still has the phone number with the old '01' prefix, which was pre-1990 (gosh, I remember the 90's).

I'm curious to know why this particular unit (in prime position, let's face it) has stayed empty and abandoned whilst those around it have changed hands many times in the intervening years.

Can anyone shed any light on this?
