Hard to imagine the current day “suburb” of Dogsthorpe as a village but this image looks rural enough to qualify for the tag …… muddy road included !
The image dates to pre-1924 as the Bluebell pub is shown before it was extended. The building to the right is the original. The smaller cottages (behind the trees/bush) are 5 cottages that were demolished in the early 1920’s and it is believed the materials were used to extend the pub to what it is today.
