187 London Road
Retail unit on the ground floor of Gary Court, on London Road.
It was vacant for the first few years of the 2010s, but in June 2015 a coffee shop called Gelattiamo opened in the left-hand part photo. As well as coffee (and tea and hot chocolate), it also did salads, panini, cakes, and ice cream. There were a couple of seats inside and a few more outside.

Gelattiamo closed again some time between December 2015 and March 2016. As of March 2016, this part of the unit was under refurbishment to open as a vape and coffee shop called Smoketronics photo. According to one of the shopfitters inside, this would be run by different people from the previous incarnation. It was open by the end of the month photo but closed again some time between March 2017 and June 2018.
Accountancy firm Taxaccolega, which had previously been further along the same block at number 193b photo, moved into the right-hand side of this unit some time between May and December 2014, and by May 2016 it had been joined by printing firm I You Print photo. Some time between March 2017 and June 2018, the I You Print printing equipment was moved to the left-hand part of the unit which had been vacated by Smoketronics.
By November 2019 a consultant from Goodwill Solicitors was also using the space photo of sign, though according to the owner of the company (via email, August 2023) this was for pre-arranged client meetings only, as the company's main offices were elsewhere.
Taxaccolega and I You Print were still present in December 2019.
