Aerial view probably from the 1930s or 1940s.

The roofs of 26 High Street are visible in the top right corner. The part of the building under the roof running left to right with a gable end onto the street has since been demolished. All that is left is under the roof running at right angles to the demolished roof, leaving the building set back from the high street, tucked behind number 24 which is to its left on this photograph.

From the Church tower, probably about 1960.

This building was demolished, probably in the 1970s. When it was demolished the old roof timbers were found to be blacken by smoke, suggesting the building originally had a central fireplace.

A closer view from the above photograph.  This is viewing the building from the path between it and the Working Men's Club.

Photograph taken at time of demolition.

The part of the building which still has glass in the windows has since been renovated and is still standing.  The old part of the building to the right in the photograph was demolished.

Another view of the roof being demolished.

A view of the demolition from the other side: from the path between this building and the Work Men's Club next door.

In April 2006.

26 High Street is the building set back from the road. This is a new construction in the 1970s.
