Older time street scenes in Great Wilbraham
It looks to be a photograph of the triangle and High Street taken from Kennels Farmhouse. A lot has changed. Just look at the old car in the distance and the state of the road which appears to be used more by horses then by cars.
Another striking feature is the presence of two pubs. The one on the right was called The Tallyho and the one on the left was The Kings Head. You can just see Toft Way beyond the Kings Head. There used to be five pubs in Great Wilbraham. The fingerpost directs traffic to London Road and Six Mile Bottom.
