The Coldingham Butcher
Peter Walker - Butcher
Peter started work in this shop at 18 years of age. Sixteen years ago he took over the business from his employer Billy Dempster when he retired.
Four years after taking over the business Peter knocked down part of the premisies and built a small house at the back of the shop and renovated the shop as it is today.
The business continues to thrive, especially in the summer months and long may it continue
