The Gate Lodge, Tilgate Forest Lodge

The quality of this photograph is not good, but it shows the Gate Lodge, and Toby, looking from the garden shortly before I married and moved out.
Before the dual carriageway and Handcross bypass were completed the traffic had just one lane in either direction to cope with the traffic. The Large Version shows the traffic on a typical Sunday morning outside the Gate Lodge heading towards Brighton for a day trip to the seaside. In the evening the scene was repeated but this time in the northbound lane.

Roads - Pease Pottage
Here we have Granny Shopland's house in Pease Pottage. Very often the Slaugham village kids would stay here and then she would take us all to London for the day.
One time, she took 13 of us up to London for a day trip, with us all spending the night before in this tiny house. There were kids sleeping in every available space and I think one even slept inside the bathtub, or that might have been Granny.
