TODAY’S feature celebrates the great British fish and chip shop, and Worcester certainly isn’t short of them!

This selection of images captures a few old favourites, though we know there are many more that aren’t included here.

One image from 1951 features C L Rickett’s Fish & Chip shop in Pinkett Street, now the Crispy Cod and celebrating its 90th year as a chip shop on this site, having been established by a Miss Finch in 1930!

The van parked outside advertises the business as a ‘High class fish fryer, supplier of prime fish, salmon, oysters etc..’

Not far from here on Checketts Lane was another tiny establishment – Burton’s Fish & Chips, who according to the boards outside were frying at 4.30pm on that particular day in July 1951 and included on their menu a selection of halibut, plaice, haddock, silver hake and cod.

Other well-known chip shops include Dutton’s on Angel Place and Fletcher’s in Lowesmoor – the latter still serving as Lowesmoor Fish Bar.
