Handcross Self-Build Association celebrates

Over the period 1982/83 twelve members of the Handcross Self-Build Association built themselves houses to the south of Covert Mead. The group valued each house at the then astonishing figure of £50,000!
The photograph shows the twelve members of the group celebrating the completion of the project with Roger Ray, Chairman of the Slaugham Parish Council. There remain a few finishing touches to complete and some landscaping.
A short video of the building work can be seen at picture #926.
