The Great Storm - Horsham Road, Handcross

With most roads around Handcross blocked by fallen trees following the Great Storm, it was inevitable that the same fate befell the Horsham Road. The picture was taken in front of the row of cottages on the right-hand side just past Ashfold.
It seems that someone has brought along a wheelbarrow to collect fuel for their wood burning stove. Enough for the next 30 years, I think!
The Large Version shows another blocked road, but I am not sure where the picture was taken. There is a roof in the top right corner of the picture which may provide a clue.
There appears to be a lady in a red coat with a small child trying to find a route through the debris.
