Then and Now – Cheddar Yeo Sword

This is a regular series of blogs about photographs of the same place taken years apart. I quite like those Then and Now comparison photographs that you see in books or on the Twitter or Facebook.  The first of the posts in this series was of a council building in Manchester.

I always thought I should give then and now photographs a go. However what I have started to notice is that I have been doing Then and Now photographs unintentionally over the years and have been taking photographs of the same thing or place from the same view or perspective years apart.

I was having a short walk in Cheddar after the recent storms and the Cheddar Yeo stream was a real torrent of water. I took a photograph of the Cheddar Yeo Sword being bombarded by the water.

I did wonder what it was like before, so I checked my older photographs of Cheddar and there was this very similar photograph I had taken in Cheddar in May 2021 from almost the same perspective.
