Square Route

Looking down towards The Square, you can see how nowadays it has become quite heavily commercialised for a village centre, mostly owed to the fact that it has become a highly popular stopping point for the traffic passing along the A166 between York and Bridlington.

Back in 1900, when our archive image was taken, it was quite a different picture, although the buildings and street layout remain almost identical, making it very easy to make a visual comparison of past with present here.
