Carriage stop at Chertsey

In earlier times, Chertsey was a prominent stop on the way to London. It was those days of the carriages and Chertsey had the main street with all the basic requirements for travelers.  There was this carriage station where you could board a carriage or get off.  The edifice of the structure is still intact, though not the function of it.

Then there was a blacksmith shop which is today barricaded and left as a sort of heritage site. It is a small thing as you see (don't be deceived by the iron outside the store, that's certainly modern).

Evidently the street is also named 'Blacksmith street'.  There are a few other structures, the edifice of which have been retained. But I was a bit apprehensive about clicking the photos of these as they are residences today and I did not want to be eyed suspiciously by anyone.
