Stanford-le-Hope in the past - can you see any differences?

Year 2 have been working really hard since they returned to school last week.  We have been finding out lots about Stanford-le-Hope through our topic Street detectives.  We have used Google street view and Google maps to look closely at our town.  We have also looked at how houses have changed over time in History.
