No 101-103 Hamlet Court Road undergoing renovation.
When it was first built the shop was run by T J Johnson, as a Ladies and Gentlemen's Outfitters, specialising in Jaeger, Viyella and other quality clothes. Ref: Hamlet Court Road Westcliff-on-Sea by Carol Edwards.
After several other uses the building is undergoing extensive restoration to bring it back to its former glory. The building consists of two 1920s shop fronts with curved glazing and timber framed recessed doorways. The very attractive central clock has been repaired, renovated and returned to its original position.
There is a planned change of use from shop to boutique hotel and cafe.
