Thorner school. No dustbins now, just wheelie bins.  :)

No matter how "peripheral" photos may appear to be, there is always something to be gleaned from them.   :D

It is interesting to see how tall the grass was, in what - at first sight - appears to be well grazed fields and I wouldn't be surprised if the window frame in the "shop" is the same as that filmed forty-four years ago!

Thanks for posting these!    >41<

I know, where's those three years gone?  :o

I managed to visit the locations again the following year but haven't had a chance again since.  :(

Good observations about the tall grass Pete. And you could be right about the window, here's screen shots compared to my pic.
A new door's been put in but the window looks the same. Unfortunately in the episode you can't see the top windows to compare them  :)

It looks as if the doorway itself replaces a second window in the "shop".    >41<

Great to see these photos.  That doorway does look like a replacement for the window; perhaps they divided the building into two tenancies.
Cheers,
Sabrina

The small lake hasn't changed much in 40 years, When I was there I was expecting Dora to walk around the corner  >95< I wish  :)
