Horsham Road, Pease Pottage

Another view of Horsham Road, Pease Pottage showing the last few houses on the eastern side. Today’s trend is towards more open-plan gardens at the front of the house providing access for off-road parking, but early in the last century it seems that extremely closely-spaced picket fencing was the preferred choice. It certainly provides a more visible boundary between private and public areas. I am intrigued that the house on the left with the decorative brickwork appears to have disappeared, or has it been substantial altered.

This house was, as you suggested, substantially altered. I think this is now number 18 Horsham Road.
The next house down (I presume is now number 20) is at the entrance of Barn Close where the Streeter family lived in the 1950s.

Yes, we did. Our Dad lived there until his sudden death in 1978. A bungalow his been built in the garden and as the house was old and of a single brick structure, there was no damp course.
I have no knowledge of that brickwork.
They were numbered 9 & 10 in my day; went to 18 & 20 in the 1960s.
