By 1898 K. D. (Kenith Dudley) Radcliffe started his business at that address after being there since 1893. As an apprentice he was paid nothing for the first year, £5 for each of the 2nd and 3rd years and £15 for the 4th year. They made guns until 1956 and then started making guns again in 1976 in the shop by R. B. Radcliffe and some by Pat Dennis. K. D. Radcliffe Ltd. remained at 150 High St until October 5, 2013 when it moved to a new address. They remain in business to this very day and you can check them out at kdradcliffe.co.uk
