The shop has served the Dicker since the 1840's originally run by generations of the Dunk family who sold supplies from crates measured out into blue paper cones and delivered by horse-drawn cart. 


In 1940 the Dunk family sold it to Leonard W. Wilde when foot rationing was in force. He is, however, recorded as "endeavouring to please his customers". Over the years the shop has housed a dairy, a bakery, a butcher, a hardware shop and it served as a Post Office from 1855 to 2008 when it was part of the government's closure scheme. 

We now continue to sell lots of locally produced goods, which you can see here.

A history of the Dicker and other books of local interest currently sit in our shop bookcase and you are always welcome to come & have a read. We also have a wall dedicated to local photos & Dicker miscellany.

Come in and sign our visitor's and leave your own mark on our history.
