First published in News

NEWS Shopper has been taking a trip down memory lane to bring you images of our news patch in years gone by.

Going back more than 100 years, the pictures reveal a glimpse of what life used to be like in the 19th and 20th centuries.

The first picture above shows kids playing on Deptford Green in 1897 with cobbled paving and wooden shutters on the windows.

St Nicholas Church is on the left but the date when it was founded is not known.

The first recorded vicar of St Nicholas was Guido de Ewar in 1321.

The second picture above shows the site in more modern times.
