Nice pic of Ferry Road. I happened to walk up the road last week. It's certainly changed! Although, there is still a small field next to the road. As I walked past it, something snorted at me. I really thought it was a pig, but when I looked through a gap in the hedge, it appeared to be some sort of podgy dog, perhaps slightly irked at me walking past.
I also walked past the shops in the original photo. That hasn't changed so much, seems instantly recognisable, because of the layout of the set-back shops. Also similar layout to another set of shops near Allport Rd, Brombourough. Every time I walk along that strectch of the A41, the scenery seems to repeat.
Funnily enough I also walked the length of Plymyard Avenue that day too. Didn't see any pigs or anything, but did notice a 132kV distribution pylon very conspicuous by its presence sandwiched between two semi-detached houses.
