The Feathers Hotel, Lydney

The Feathers Hotel

Colin added: "... the Feathers was (we think ) taken around 1958/59 when the function hall was being built. I had the pic. from Niki Wright (Swan-Smith) daughter of Len and Beryl the owner's at the time".

To the left of The Feathers, the Post Office can be seen with red post vans in the yard. Left again is the entrance to Letheren's garage, where the buses had to be carefully reverserved out onto the road (then the A 48!)

Roger Dennis added: "... Not just red vans but the delightfully old-fashioned Morris GPO Telephones van with roof ladder in proper green livery. I still treasure my Dinky Toys model of the same. It's almost opposite 2 Oxford St home of Annie House Pritchard nee Jones my maternal grandmothers house".

Wendy Benstead asked: "... I lived at 2 Oxford Street (opposite the old Post office) from 1971 to 1986. Can anyone tell me please what is the long white building joined onto 2 Oxford street in this photo (facing onto Oxford Street) and when it was taken down?. Thanks".

Mike Walker added (September 2016): "... The building on the corner next to the Post Office used to house a sweet shop owned by a Mr White. I think he and his wife had another sweet shop in Hill Street. Behind the sweet shop was a gents hairdressesers owned by 'Sniffy' Lewis. You had to walk through the sweet shop to get to the hairdressers".
