The Drewitts, Warninglid (1 of 2)

Heading south from Warninglid along Spronketts Lane on the right shortly after Freechase lies The Drewitts. Unlike Freechase, The Drewitts is situated in the Parish of Cowfold and not Slaugham, although it is always described as being part of Warninglid..
In about the 1980s the house was demolished and replaced by a modern house.

Comments:
I remember way back in the 1960s visiting Drewitts which was open for the National Gardens Scheme.
As we got out of the car, my two-year-old daughter unfortunately rushed out with her bucket and spade after a long boring journey and started digging up the daffodils along the road by the side of the house. I dashed out to stop her and a lovely gentleman who introduced himself as Major Wigan came out from the house and found the incident very amusing.
He suggested we went into the house for tea and cakes and we had a tour of the grounds. What a fantastic day we had.
When I pass Drewitts now I cant help remembering our Sunday trip in the country and how charming Major Wigan was.

My mother worked as a housekeeper for the Wigan family in the 1980s.
We lived in the Drewitts cottages (Garden Cottage i think)
I would love to hear from anyone who lived in Warninglid at the time and can remember Terry Quinn.
