About this image

MYSTERY SOLVED! A street view thought to be in North Leverton, Nottinghamshire is actually of the Red Lion Inn, Main Street, Coddington, Nottinghamshire. The view is looking north towards the junction with Beckingham Road. The pub and adjacent cottages were demolished at some point in the 1960s. In the foreground is an agricultural building, part of Sunnyside Farm, which survives. Photographed by Maurice Barley between 1948 and 1950. © Historic England Archive BB50/00528
