This shot, C. 1900, shows the two-part nature of the village, owing to the disecting, floodable River Bride (see 178). The core of the village lies around the church, here dominated by the former engine house of Roberts' Flax Mill north of the river. South-over-the-Bride we have only two old roads - Southover and Bridge Street. Mostly centre and right of this photograph.
