Farleigh WickThe Bath Road at Farleigh Wick, looking towards Bradford, was much narrower in the early 20th century than it is now. The Fox & Hounds public house is on the right.  The bus, probably the one that connected Bradford with the Bath tram at Bathford, may have been inserted to add interest to the picture.
