Strang Street is a short row of eleven buildings and runs from Cheap Street to Billgate (which curiously has no windows). It is home to three shops, an inn and seven offices. Notable shops include “Reluctant Heroes” which does a brisk trade in comics, role-playing and board games and TV and film memorabilia, and “Curious Chattels”, selling vintage and pseudo-vintage goods, such as resin ornaments of Laurel and Hardy, aluminium notices advertising Pear’s soap and wooden chests smelling of camphor and old leaves. The Unicorn Inn has been closed down for several years and is currently used as the meeting house for the Secret Society of the Following Tuesday.
