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?

What a co-incidence, My son's were saying the same this afternoon. It's been empty since we moved into WP 13 years ago.

It was all closed up even when we were house-hunting before moving to Worcester Park and that was in 1988. Who is the mysterious person who must go in now and again to collect the post?

You should drop a letter in, asking the post collector for an interview!
