Cherrington's the Chemist

Now and Then

March /Cherrington’s the Chemist

This site in the Market Place (No.5) has been a chemist’s shop since about 1780, when George Stevenson was a ‘Druggist’ and paid the Duke of Newcastle rent of £120 a year.  In the mid 1880s Frederick March was the proprietor, and in 1882 he took on George Cherrington, a former veterinary surgeon from Stamford, as his apprentice.  Now a card shop, the frontage is still attractive, and still shows a shadow of its previous use
