This is a gem of little shops, but a shame the church is no longer in use, a sign of the times I suppose. There are shops on two levels but our favourite is the old sweet shop where you can buy old style lollies...More

Small retailers in a converted church building. A little bit niche but if you want a haircut, some traditional sweets, or some local cheese you might find it here. Just on the non-coast end of Front Street.
