Ashmole stores

The Ashmole stores is a local newsagent and convenience store in the Ashmole Estate close to Claylands Road Green,  It serves the local community including Claylands, Meadow and Trigon Roads, the Ashmole Estate, Archbishop Tenison School and Ashmole School.  

The Ashmole estate was built in two phases,  Permission for the 18 storey Bannerman House was granted in 1969 and was built by 1972.  Sirinham point followed in 1974.  The current owners took over the shop in 1984 and have been serving the community ever since.  It is understood that the site of the shop was originally for bikes.  Local residents wanted a shop and the sores were subsequently built.
