View over Church Lane from the Church tower then and now

These photographs were taken from the top of the Church tower, looking towards Church Lane. The scene has changed considerably in 100 years. The older picture (approx 1910), has some large trees which block the view of the two small cottages on the left of Church Lane, which are numbers 19 and 17. The four terraced cottages, numbers 15, 13, 11 and 9 can be clearly seen on both pictures. On the older picture, you can see four cottages (numbers 1 to 7), that have since been demolished. The newer picture was taken in February 2013.

The older picture was discovered in an extremely faded form in the Leicestershire and Rutland Record Office. The museum team are extremely grateful to the Record Office for providing a scan that could then be enhanced to provide the picture you can see today.
