George and Alice Cook at Tilgate gardens

Here is a photograph of my grandparents, George Cook and Alice Cook (née Lee), at Tilgate gardens, standing in front of one of the outbuildings close to their cottage. The cottage was next to the walled garden which is still there.
He was head gardener and grew prize-winning peaches amongst other things! I’m not sure if that is what my Gran is holding here! (See picture #2383)

I asked my Auntie Kath (Cook) "How come George lived so long?" She said it was because Alice did all the work!
