Our shop is on Mardol, now there’s a name? There are two theories to the origin of this name, one being the street led to the original Welsh Bridge and then onto the Welsh Border, Mardol meaning ‘The Devils Border’. As to the other meaning, you will just have to drop into our shop and ask the team for that!
