IT is as if time has stood still in Armitage Bridge.
More than 50 years separate these two photos, captured in the very heart of the village. But the only noticeable difference is the line of vehicles parked up outside the cottages.
The shot was taken from Wood End Road, looking down on to Armitage Road, and the historic cottages have changed little. Only the vanished street lamp and a newly-built wall mark the passage of time.
Beyond is Dean Brook Road, stretching down to Armitage Fold WMC - nicknamed The Monkey Club - and wending its way round to the village cricket club.
Even the view into the distance, with Berry Brow and Newsome, has changed little.
