More about this scene

The town is a little disappointing - it is a mix of Rothschild fake timber-framing and earlier buildings. In this view the town is en fete for Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee. Much has gone, including the old Rose and Crown, which was replaced around 1900 by the present mock timber-framed one set back from the road: a townscape disaster. The building on the right with the navy flag has also gone to make a square in front of the church and war memorial.
