Traditional butcher’s shops are back in fashion - but in Dronfield High Street, they never went out.
There has been a butcher’s at Number 5 since the 18th century. Established in 1702 , it is run by Frank Fisher, as his father, grandfather and great-grandfather did. And he is determined to keep the tradition going - even though he’s 84.
He’s behind the counter 9-5 every working day. “I’m everything from the MD to the floor-scrubber. The shop gives me something to get up in the morning for. After all these years, the best part of the job is still chatting with my customers,” he says. His cash register is from the 50s.
