Description:Marching band in a parade along the High Street.

On the left is the Unicorn Hotel which was demolished in the early 1980s. On the right with the AA and RAC signs is the Crown Hotel. The Crown Hotel was damaged by fire in 1778. The new building was designed by Henry Holland in 1780. The inn was a stop for stage coaches from London, Manchester and Birmingham; there was also a post room where mail bags were stored while awaiting the next coach.

Many of the other buildings remain although their ground floors have changed over the years.
