Black Swan, Pease Pottage

The traditional swinging pub sign appears to be missing, but the large sign just a couple of yards from the busy A23 London to Brighton road tells us that the picture is of “The Black Swan Hotel, Luncheons and Teas Provided, J. Stewart, proprietor.”
When this photograph was taken, the road beyond the sign descended Pease Pottage Hill and, after about two miles through rural landscape, crossed over the boundary of the Slaugham Parish just past the Half Moon pub (now in Southgate, Crawley), and arrived in the small market town of Crawley. The boundary was changed in the 1950s and the most northerly part of the Parish was transferred to Crawley.
