Take a look back at these Rugby town centre names

One thing leads to another and in researching a completely different story, we found ourselves in Rugby town centre, 2009.

This was thanks to the wonders of Google Street View and we couldn’t resist getting distracted and having a look round the main shopping streets as they used to be.

And then it seemed right to share this trip down memory lane with our readers.

So whether you’ve been in Rugby for two or 62 years, take a look at those we’ve chosen – and don’t worry about it only being 14 years ago. Nostalgia ain’t what it used to be – it doesn’t have to be black-and-white photos or something we remember from the school history curriculum...
