Old houses
The Common

As it once looked
(picture from SWOP website)

As it looks today

Although they’re now forgotten,
These early homes of folk
Provided little shop fronts
When all things came bespoke.
A cobbler lived in one house,
His shoes and boots on show,
With a sweet shop in another,
All those many moons ago.

When The Common was the centre of village life the houses here were partly shops. A sweet shop, a cobblers and perhaps even a post office are remembered as being here once upon a time.
