Jennie Pettit (née Hood) Year: 1958 Villages: HandcrossStagecoach in Handcross High Street
During the period from the early 1950s to the early 1960s the Red Rover stagecoach made several runs from London to Brighton to promote Watneys brewery. The series of runs used to be at three-yearly intervals, and the old coaching inn, the Red Lion in Handcross, was a required stopping place both for lunch and to change the horses.
In the photograph the Red Rover is coming down the High Street in Handcross with the coachman sounding the horn to announce their arrival.
