Another great set.

 

The Appleton village one:

I wonder if the Appleton Thorn was just a house in that picture as there are no signs on it. Strange to see a hedge where the carpark is now. Also in that picture are houses on the left. Never seen those before. When I moved around there in '58 there were no houses that I can recall.

Definitely a pub you can see the licensee name sign over the doorway, they didn't always have posh signs as in country villages they were often not very afluent as they catered mainly for farmworkers. As a matter of interest I have it on my pub list as being there as early as 1832 ( would not be the same building as in the photo though) the licensee was a G.Newall. Regarding the hedge that was probably part of the garden as few or no cars, no need for a car park. The buildings that were opposite would be either cottages or farm buildings long gone before you arrived in 1958 Baz, probably demolished when the Stretton air field was built?.
