Bighton Village Shop and Post Office c.1915
Bighton Village Shop and Post Office c.1915
This shop was home (and work) to John and Harriet Butcher for a number of years. John was a Baker and he and his wife ran a bakery from the shop and post office store until their death in 1860. During those years, they were ably assisted by their newphew, Isaac Norgate. Isaac followed in the footsteps of his uncle and was probably trained by him.

After the death of John and Harriet, Isaac - who never married - took over the shop and served the village for the rest of his life - a total of 60 years!
