Fisherton Street Traders Association


We are proud of our ancient street originally named Fisherton Anger which dates back to before the 11th century. The original settlement lay between Mill Road and the river. The rivers were rich in fish and caught by local residents, hence the name Fisherton.

With the introduction of the railway lines in 1856, Fisherton Street became linked to the outside world and by 1875 there were butchers, drapers, grocers and bakers, jewelers, blacksmiths, tobacconists, tailors, greengrocers and appropriately fishmongers.

Today Fisherton Street shop keepers maintain this proud tradition with an eclectic mix of trades, goods and services which are unrivaled in the South of England. When you visit one of the shops or stores in our street you will certainly be given a warm welcome from family businesses eager to offer you the best possible service. 

We hold regular business only meetings in Fisherton Street.
