Postcard of Meavy, c1900

A picture postcard of Meavy taken about 1900.  From the left, the first building is Mill Cottage.  Next is The Mill, and if you look closely you can just about see the mill wheel on the right.  The large house and barns is Meavy Barton Farm.  Behind the barns is St. Peter's Church, the Meavy parish church.  The cottage in front of the church was a shop and post office.  The Royal Oak Inn is on the right, partly hidden by the old oak tree.

And the same view in 2000.
