Verwood Village Scenes


Edmonsham Road






Edmonsham Road where it meets the crossroads.

On the right is Paula's Place which was a shoe shop and has since been replaced by Fayrewood Court. The sale board can be seen to the right of the building.

On the left, Days shop was a greencrocer and fishmonger which also sold fish and chips on two evenings per week.

Compare this with the picture on page 17 of Around Verwood.
