It looks like the BP station was in front of the shops; this 2016 document is reversed - a mirror image:

Lots of photos of the BP station here. It was replaced by the residential development between the shops and the Green Man:

This photo shows that the old Three Horse Shoes beerhouse building survived for quite a while into the 20th century, with the petrol station added to the east and garage buildings to the west. It was a very wide plot:

An even better photo here:  https://i.pinimg.com/originals/33/a3/ae/33a3ae2551e41b0f0a2a7e31133166f4.jpg

The Three Horse Shoes is in the foreground. White Horse next but one, Leather Bottle in the distance.

Hi Shaun

I think that probably answers my original question. If you have a look at the map I put in my original post, (C) becomes the Three Horseshoes and the letter (F) which becomes the Leather Bottle needs to be moved to the left of the Post Office - marked (A).

This then corresponds with the relationship given in the 1861 census (when George Dell was the licencee of the Three Horseshoes). The photographer was standing on the green looking north east.

Cheers Alan

(Actually, after cleaning the image up a bit in Photoshop, I think the original postcard was printed reversed. It does now match with the censuses and the map)
