Gibbons Furniture and The Earl of Amhurst
I’ve been looking and I can’t find much on E.Gibbons the furniture store at 15(ish) Amhurst Rd for 180 years, next door stood the Earl of Amhurst.From being there at the time, I know…. Around 2001 The Earl of Amhurst became District and Gibbons became a crappy furniture shop. In 2003 the furniture shop went up for auction, but didn’t reach it’s reserve price. On 9th June 2003 at 3am a fire started in the empty building – the plot has been empty since and is currently a car park
