An excellent account of life in the village at the time can be read at

Baston, Main Street

Vintage car at Baston c.1905

Just love the old vehicle in this shot from Baston which must have been one of the first on our local roads. The CT 161 registration plate shows that it was registered at Kesteven (Lincs) sometime between 1903 and 1905.
