This very striking yellow two-storey building in 6 Church Street was built in 1884. It looks slightly different than the surrounding historic buildings. The style was called plain Italianate when it was built in 1884 but several changes have impaired the historical authenticity of the building. So it even faced demolition in 1996, but after a passionate campaign it was saved.
In the early days it was used as a bakery by the Brown family that had immigrated from Scotland, and was quickly erected when the bakery next door burnt down.
Since the bakery closed the building has housed several kinds of businesses. At the moment it is a shop named Fire & Ice. They are specialised in natural crystals, gemstones and minerals, gold and silver jewellery. The also import pure Aromatherapy essential oils. Open daily.
