Ingatestone: Coal Merchants

Now the site of Barrington Close, in the High Street just to the south of The Furlongs, this photograph was taken in August 1983 when the house in front of the coal yard belonging to Charringtons was being demolished. Ingletons were the local estate and land agents. My parents used to buy their coal from here before we had central heating. The other coal merchant in the village was Porter & Hughes whose coal yard was at the railway station.
