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.
