Aerial Photos of Wootton in 1947

Historic England have released on-line millions of aerial photos taken from the 1920s onwards. You can browse the collection for yourself at their website here.

Below is a photo of our village from 1947 with markers for orientation. Of note:

  • The hotel looks different from now
  • I think there is a village hall
  • Almost none of the houses past Crockford exist
  • Nowhere for Roger or Mary to live!

There are also red dots which are recent photos too.
