Rush hour in Handcross

With a parked wagon on the left, a large Durtnell wagon facing towards the Horsham Road, a smaller cart facing up the High Street, and a crowded stagecoach on the extreme right just leaving the Red Lion on its way to Brighton, it must be rush hour in Handcross. One assumes that the large wagon in the centre belonged to Durtnell & Sons which was established in 1591 and is Britain’s oldest surviving building company.
Another busy scene is depicted in the attached painting which shows three stagecoaches and a varied assorted of other animals outside the pub. Click on Large Version to view.
