Looking West up the main street towards the Bird Inn with South View cottages on the right

This view taken from an old postcard shows the Bird Inn with the landlords name. The side of Laburnum House can be seen on the left. The lane that runs behind the pub and up to the now demolished row of cottages that stood where the Ship Inn now has a car park was known as ‘Welsh’s Backside’ but I don’t know who ‘Welsh’ was. What looks like a  pedlar/delivery boy is at the door of 1 South View and what is now the Spar shop in 2 and 3 is a drapers shop and a dwelling.
