This photo is loaned by Jack Holmes via John Abbott. It shows the Wheatsheaf Inn in the background and was taken looking north from the corner of Main Road and Valley Lane, probably in the late 1930s.


Jack recalls that the building with the Mansion Polish sign on the wall was used as a cobblers by Mr. Tommy Allwood and the small shop attached to the house in the foreground was at various times used as a Post Office and Sweet Shop. Over the years different people traded from this shop namely, Bissell's,Woodhead's and Winters.
