The Street

Syderstone

 

Circa 2000

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The above photograph was taken from the same spot on 5 November 2000.

 

The points of reference to note are the street drain in the bottom left hand corner of the picture and the configuration of the chimney pots on both sides of the street, as compared with the original photograph.

 

The wall on the left of the picture has been demolished, but for the final upward sweep, and new houses have been built called “Rectory Gardens”.  The third house down the street on the right hand side was the village store, which closed in August 2005.  The main change of course is associated with the advent of the motor car, which has necessitated the introduction of raised pavements for pedestrians.
