Verwood Village Scenes


Station Road


Part 1 - Cross Roads to Pine View Road



Looking down the start of Station Road from the crossroads at Hopkins Newsagents.

Day's shop next door was the greengrocer, fishmonger and fish and chip shop.

On the left the house past Ottons stood where the car sales lot now exists.

Look on page 17 of Around Verwood to compare the changes here. There is also a picture of the garage on page 23 of Verwood Village Days.

Compare this with the pictures on page 2 of Verwood Village Days.

The copse on the left was cut down to build Berkeley Close.

On the right is Eastworth Road.

The house on the right is "The Coppice" which was opposite the entrance to Dewlands Road.

The white cottage beyond is "Somerley Cottage" which I believe was once the Police house.

Look on page 29 of Around Verwood to see the bungalows opposite the field.
