The Junction


The junction of the three roads which meet in the village are shown here from Bridgnorth Road, looking towards The Waterloo Inn.  The buildings on the corner of High Street and Bridgnorth Road were still houses and in 2011 are an opticians and a physiotherapist.
The row of shops clearly shown on the right are still recognisable although the fronts and merchandise have changed a number of times.  The paper shop still exists but the row now houses two charity shops, an arcade where the toy shop once stood, a cafe and a fish and chip shop.  The Waterloo Inn is now a restaurant.  The zebra crossings are still there and the off-road bus stop was installed in the 1950s.  The traffic island was installed as early as the 1930s.
