There has been a butchers shop on the site of Blackwell's for over a hundred years so when Martin Blackwell inherited the family business from his father in 1978 he was determined to maintain the "Quality First" ethos.

The business has now been handed over to 3rd generation of the family with Anna taking the on shop on from her father.
