High Street, Handcross

The High Street is really deserted with just one bicycle and a horse and cart in sight, and both of these are stationary.
I really had forgotten have imposing and/or intrusive the old telegraph poles used to be. The pole in the middle distance only has eight arms, but by 1951 it had amassed a total of 14 arms! See picture #129.
The white pebbledashed frontage of Winfrith and Casterbridge is quite striking. Nowadays the exterior has mellowed somewhat and blends in with Oakley Cottages and Rose Cottages beyond.
The Large Version shows a close up of the scene outside the shops on the left, with an enormous forest at the top end of the village!
