It's the old Meadow Dairy if you have a look on streetview. The detail under the guttering is the same and the three marks above the signage are the same. Even the repairs to the stone are still...

I could be way off the mark here, but I found records of a vessel which sank in 1885 (sail and steam powered) after it ran aground hitting rocks at 'Bordicar point' (possibly wrong spelling). It was...

Does anyone know if the wall running along the river at the top of the bank was removed at some point and why? It looks like it is in the same place as the new flood defence which they had to build,...

The other cross is on the right arm (looking at him.... his left) of the guy sat on the right of the picture. I'd say he was Jack, as he looks older than the other guy with a cross
