At the crossroads outside the Half Moon the gap between the shop and the house on the other side of the road is just large enough for two-way traffic in Warninglid Lane. With both buildings now demolished the vista is far more open.
Through the gap can be seen the wheelwright's yard established by William Warden Walder in the late 19th century. The site is now occupied by Pear Trees.

It would be interesting to find out who the child is in the photo as it could be one of our family.

Barry Ray: I have added a Large Version of the young lad, but I suspect that the lack of clarity has not really assisted any identification.

William Warden Walder was my 3xgreat-grandmother's, Mary Ann Walder, younger half brother.
WWW was born in 1853 and died in 1933. Their father, John Walder, was married in 1839 and 1848, and Mary Ann and WWW were children of these 2 marriages by the 2 respective mothers, Mary Ann Boniface and Charlotte Potter.
The boy in the photo may be a relation for all I know, a grandson of WWW perhaps.

My father always used to tell the story that early in the last century there used to be a sign outside the wheelwright's shop which said "William Warden Walter Walder, Wheelwright, Wealden Workshop, Warninglid".
Whether he really had a third first name of Walter, I am not sure. Perhaps it was a case of artistic licence!
