Caption for St Nicholas, The Village C1965:
There is no general consensus as to the origin of 'St Nicholas' as a place name. Some believe that it is derived from the phosphorescent light effect seen around vessels in the nearby Bristol Channel, sometimes referred to by its Russian name 'St Nicholas's Lights'. At the time of this photograph the population of the parish had fallen to 326 – not until the 1980s would it match its 1950s high.
