Best of luck to the new Turkish barber opening in the former Closet site. It’s good to see such a prime spot on the High Street being occupied again.

BUT, dear reader, please allow Wansteadium a moment of wistfulness for the lost shopfront which had been a feature of the shop for at least 100 years, according to photographs of previous tenants. There was a charm about the old which is now gone. But good luck nevertheless to the new venture.
