Goswell & Bird’s history

Named in honour of the families who previously supplied the village with their daily goods, Goswell & Bird's is here to bring back a village stores and coffee shop to Finchampstead.

In Victorian times, Mr and Mrs Goswell were licensees of The Greyhound Inn who later moved to nearby The Thatched Cottage to start a village shop there. Their daughter Nellie along with her husband Graystone Bird took it over from her parents and ran it until they retired in 1973.

For forty years it was the main supply of groceries, haberdashery and almost anything imaginably found in a village stores and well patronised by the local residents. For many, it was the only source of items which they could reach on foot.
