Our History

From coal store to WH Smith to Community Shop.

The first train departed from Hampton for Waterloo at 7:35am on the first of November 1864. At that point the shop was most likely a coal yard, through the years the shop shifted to become a WH Smith & Son, before finally being reborn just over a hundred years after that first train as a community book store.
