This photo has been loaned by Ann Howell via John Abbott. It shows a view of the Great North Road in the village in the 1940s and a distinct lack of traffic.

On the left can been seen Ayrshire House, the Reindeer Inn and in the distance Chapel Row Cottages. On the right can be seen one of the village ponds that was to the north of Bennington House and, in the distance, the school.
