This aerial photo shows the closely packed complex of commercial buildings that grew up across the Road from the railway sidings. They were served by lines which actually ran across the Road. The tall chimney marks the location of Wheeler’s timber yard (see also image pa145) whilst the white roofed building in the left centre of the picture is now the site of the Town Bus Station. 1940s?
