The Red Lion at Handcross starts its rebuild

Some months after the fire at the Red Lion in Handcross in September 1978, work started on the rebuilding. Much of the fabric of the building had been demolished and removed, but the old ostler’s cottage on the extreme right suffered only minor damage and was incorporated into the rebuild. Photographs of the interior of this part of the pub can be seen at picture #1573.
The building to the rear of the ostler’s cottage has a large hole in the upper floor where the charred roof timbers of the adjoining building extended downwards and have now been removed. The half-timbered wall below the hole was an interior wall on the first floor, below which was a communicating door.
