Gun Shop Thirsk

    Recommended Posts

    A friend of mine is doing a family tree.

    She has sent me the following as an email:

     

    Looking to find out if anyone remembers a gun shop in Thirsk run by a man called John Simpson and if so, what happened to him?

     

    I would be obliged if PW members in the Thirsk area could cast their minds back and possibly shine some light.

    After a look online there was a Simpsons tackle and gun shop in S tokesly. Remember the name but lots of them have closed down.

    John W Simpson was at two address` in the market place Stokesley in the 80`s. 1st was on Bridge Rd ,2nd would be High St ,I think.

     

     

    He later ran Lordstones Cafe at Carlton Bank top.

     

    There was a gunshop in Finkle St,Thirsk in the 70`s but I cannot remember the name.Seem to recall it had a related shop elsewhere,perhaps Harrogate ???
