Alphabet Friday - Kings Road


K is for Kings Road and today's photograph shows Kings Road between St John's Church and Hurst Cross.

On the left, the Church Inn was to let at the time the photo was taken. On the other side of Rowley Street is Higher Hurst Post Office, with the Co-op at the other end of the block.
