Pease Pottage featured in local newspaper

I can find no evidence of which local newspaper contained this article but it is evident that they had a rambling reporter who decided to investigate the village of Pease Pottage, its history, and its residents.
Those interviewed for the article were Mr W. Belt, garage proprietor (picture #145), Don Wiltshire, flower seller, William Thorn, whose father was landlord of The Grapes pub from 1906 to 1946 (picture #1258), Mr W. H. Knight, proprietor of the Post Office stores in Tilgate Forest Row (picture #166), and Joe Verlander, dart board manufacturer (picture #1630).
