Hi Dave, 

This photo was taken in, the now car park, of All Saints Church. My brother (front row, second from the left) has filled in the scout/cubs names and dated the photo circa 1946.... 

 

 

Back Row:
(L to R)
Dennis Roberts, Brian Willman, John Rye, Michael Phillips, Michaal Stewart, Peter Waite, Patrick Fish, Alec Humphries (in Scout uniform). 
Middle Row: John Morrell, Michael Davidson, unknown, John Wright, Allan Lott, ? Piper (but not sure here), Dougie Baker.
Front Row: Billy Ellerby, Bill Dancer, David Stewart, Rev. Dennis Williams (the then Curate of All Saints and Cub Master - I don't recall calling him Arkela), David Jordan, Barry Roberts.

 

I can remember when the car park was "un-made" with a garden border. There was a row of bollards across the entrance to the hall over which I played leapfrog. The Monument was a real "local" frequented by many local characters who would meander home on foot after a good night - often guided by a faithful family dog.

As Sue pointed out, the photo provides a glimpse of the church frontage and monument pub before cars took over the world and a car park was built. In modern times, it looks like this.....
