Views and landscapes: Ireleth: I004
I004

This postcard of the road to Kirkby is quite well known, having been featured in Garbutt & Marsh's book among others. The Traveller's Rest pub, on the right, is still open at the time of the photograph. Any information on when the Traveller's closed would help to narrow down the date; if you know, please send me an email.

The modern road has been significantly straightened and widened and a great deal of vegetation has since grown up, so that the view of (what is now) Barker's farm is now obscured. However, Ireleth St Peter's School and Beulah House can still be seen from roughly the same position today.
