The Blacksmith’s Arms retains its character, with a rather quirky roof. What is interesting to me in these pictures is how remarkably similar the view is, with the buildings pretty much unchanged, yet the transformation of the road and addition of parked cars make the two scenes particularly distinct from one another.
