The Oldest Sweet Shop In England
On a recent visit to Pateley Bridge, North Yorkshire, I visited the Oldest Sweet Shop in England. The building dates from 1661 and a business has traded there since 1827. The shop is a real sweet lovers’ experience with its original fixtures and fittings and features, including a black cast iron Yorkshire range complete with cast iron cauldrons.
The aroma of sweets is just wonderful and it is hard to choose from the vast range of traditional sweets available. It is a traditional corner of English life in a traditional North Yorkshire market town.
