We had the name of this shop, but not its location and asked if people remembered this shop?  Or if it was still there?

Thanks to a couple of comments we identified where the shop was and one contributor was kind enough to send a modern day image.

  • Chanor Sports Supplies was opened in 1965 by Chanor Engineering which operated in the yard at the rear of the shop. Norman Wyman managed the shop and later opened and owned Sportarama in Letchworth and Stevenage

  • The shop is 102 Bancroft Hitchin, the building the the left (101) is now a shop too having been home to NFU insurance after the latter moved from an office in Paynes Park.
