Tilgate Forest Row, Pease Pottage

The building on the left is Pease Pottage post office and the lady seems to be clutching a letter to post in the box. The building was originally the Working Men’s Club, of which Charles Songhurst was a member. He had run the village post office when it was located opposite the Black Swan but in about 1945 he moved the business a half a mile southwards to Tilgate Forest Row.

The cottage the lady is passing is called Woodbine Cottage. The post office building is still there but much altered and is now called West Park House, being the offices of West Park contractors.
What a delightful picture, I deliver the post here every day!
