The Weston gunmakers of 7, New Road

by Robert Hodges 30 April 2016

I’m researching the history of the Westons who were game-shooting gunmakers, starting with William Weston in 1825 and carried on by his descendents Charles John and Herbert Abraham, and was carried on by Charles’ son Charles Arthur. The business was named C&H Weston between 1866 and 1920, and C&A from then until approx 1980s. Does anyone have images of the shop at 7 New Road, to the left of the Theatre, or anything else about its history? Thanks
