New Buildings, Parish Lane, Pease Pottage

This view of New Buildings Farm in Parish Lane, Pease Pottage has barely changed over the last century, except that electricity pylons have since been erected on the skyline.
Added at 13th August 2012. Shirley Elmokadem has kindly supplied a photograph of her great-grandparents, Henry and Mary Lee, who lived on the New Buildings farm and indeed Henry worked for the farm. The photograph was taken about 1916 and can be found by clicking on Large Version.

My great grandparents Mary and Henry Lee lived in one of the cottages on the farm and my father Jack was born there in 1918.

In 1932, on a Sunday afternoon walk, my 3-year-old brother, David, was taken to Cinder Banks at the end Parish Lane to see the first electric train. He cried and cried until a proper engine, with smoke, came by. His future life was a locomotive engineer at Three Bridges, becoming a driver at age 24. I can remember these outings to the end of the Parish Lane and calling in to see kindly Mr. and Mrs. Lee, who would select two of their largest chicken eggs and pencil D and A on them for us.

As kids we loved to race down this lane in our soapboxes.
Only problem was pulling them back up the hill after rolling down for at least a mile!
