Dulux – Bowrings Lane
The home of a women’s shoe and accessories store since the late 1970s, this building — with frontage onto Langtree Avenue, and backing onto Bowrings Lane — was once the site of a paint store.
Evidence of its history can be seen from Bowrings Lane, where an old sign sits high above the staff carpark with the words “Super-enamel. There’s a Dulux paint for every purpose” in plain sight.
This advertisement has been layered on top of another sign, older still, that could point to the building’s prior use.
It’s understood the building was also once a glass shop and, at another time, undertakers.
