The Duck or Grouse
Community owned shop
The Duck or Grouse occupies the ‘front room’ of a fourteenth century cottage. The front of the cottage was converted to a store in the same year that Henry V was given France as a wedding dowry (1420). The Duck or Grouse is thus a contender for the title of ‘Britain’s oldest shop’.
