Ivy Cottage and The Grapes in Pease Pottage

On the Old Brighton Road in Pease Pottage, between the “Tin Church” and The Grapes public house used to stand Ivy Cottage. I am not sure if the old cottage was pulled down or incorporated into the new building on the site.
In 1911 it was the residence of Albert Thompson, his wife Lilian Thompson, their two daughters, and two boarders.
Just beyond Ivy Cottage stands The Grapes public house with the vinery attached to the south-facing wall. The glasshouse was used to produce its own grapes, from which activity the pub was named. A glimpse of the vinery can be seen in picture #159, but I notice that the structure had disappeared when picture #1257 was taken in 1927.
The Large version shows a close up.
The pub closed for business in 2008, see picture #160, and was pulled down in 2010, see picture #161.
By 2012, three pairs of semi-detached houses had been built and were put on the market.
