Newent, 2015: Market Place
I've been waiting for the right opportunity to get this shot in since I saw Ben's vintage shot (SO7225 : Newent, 1987: Market Place) appear earlier this year.
I'm slightly too close because there was a large white van to my right that would have ruined the comparison.
However this photo taken mid-morning, on a Thursday in December contrasts with the springtime scene over 28 years earlier. Happily there is still plenty of human activity; it is market day after all.
One interesting development is the pharmacy in the centre of Ben's shot is now a Polish food store.
If I'm still here in 2043 I'll take another one for the record.
