Rifleman Inn at Warninglid with early motor car

This is the old Rifleman Inn at Warninglid which was demolished in 1906 and rebuilt in a more modern style. The present building was modernised again in 1969.
It is interesting to see the uniformed carriage driver with the horse and carriage which sight would be replaced rapidly over the next few years by the new mode of transport seen climbing the hill.
Southdown and East Grinstead Breweries was founded from a merger in 1895.
In 1861 the building was sold to J. W. Best who was a brewer and turned it into a beer house. Only beer and cider were for sale until 1929 when wines were added. A full licence was not obtained until 1956.
