'High Street, Badsey'

This section of the High Street faces the Wheatsheaf Inn. In the old picture Montpelier is on the left and Malvern House on the right. 'The Rock' (built 1978) is between them on the modern picture. The old picture shows that one side of Montpelier was used as a shop.

Track Changes uses pairs of photographs to show how Badsey has altered over a period of about 75 years. The old pictures are from postcards sold at Badsey Post Office in the 1920s and reproduced with the kind permission of Pat Goldstraw. The new photographs were taken in 2001.
