    I think this is Hoddeston High Street. The pub later in the clip is The White Swan. The street is now semi-pedestrianized. http://deadpubs.co.uk/HertsPubs/Hoddesdon/Swan.shtml

    This is from about 1960. There are numerous vehicles there which came out between 1957 and 1959 at least. You need to correct your heading.

    A visitor to the site has written in to point out that there are a lot of 1950s cars in this clip, including some models that came out in 1958-9.

    Does anyone have any idea what year this is or can suggest an alternative date range?
