Another Then and now photographs.

Churchgate in 1898.

Here above is another early photograph attributed to the village painter/decorater William Bailey. Note that it is a gravel road and one can set up a tripod without fear of being run over!
Churchgate Today.
Now here is a recent photograph of the changes that have taken place in the past 115 years. Gone is the ivy growth over the building, also the elm trees that suffered from the Dutch Elm discease.
Click on the photos to enlarge them.
