The Railway Crossing

Staying close to the centre of the village I can show this picture taken in the mid 1960's by my father-in-law

Compare it with this taken in 2011. 
The public house formerly known as the Railway Hotel and now the Merry Monk was undergoing some renovation work

This is a view apparently from the footbridge of the North road side of the crossing.
A train just entering the station. Boots the Chemist can be seen as occupying a double shop front, they later relocated to a larger property further up the road on the other side where they remain to the present day.
The small unit with the green roller blind is probably Mitchell's greengrocers.
