The pictures illustrate the development of the village of Stokeford that have taken place over a period of 80 years. In general, it is clearly shown that River Stoke and a bridge remained unchanged throughout the given period of time and many more houses had been constructed in 2010.
There were major changes in the village of Stokeford over the years. First of all, the shops located in the east of River Stoke were destroyed and more houses were built in 2010. The next noticeable feature is that the farmland in 1930 was demolished and it was converted into residential places with new roads being constructed. Furthermore, primary school was developed in 2010 and it was almost doubled in 2010 compared to 1930. Part of the gardens in 1930 was used for the residential purpose by building more rows of houses near the main road. The left-over garden with a large house was then developed into a retirement home in 2010.
