Historic Fish & Chip Shop in Nelson SOLD

The sale of this fish & chip shop in Brierfield, Nelson was an absolute delight to oversee. The business has traded as a fish & chip shop since 1972 when a member of England’s World Cup winning squad of 1966 opened as Connolly’s Plaice. The down-to-earth footballer (John Connolly) was coming towards the end of his career following time at Burnley, Blackburn Rovers and Manchester United and so decided to open the business in 1972. You can find the business in it’s current guise at 114-116 Colne Road Brierfield Nelson BB9 5RQ trading as Connolly’s Chippy.
