Cyclist in Horsham Road, Handcross

This is a view of Laurel Cottage in the foreground, without most of the ivy which was smothering it, and the “Rabbit Hutches” just right of centre. On the extreme left, the fence and shed would be cleared away soon after WWII to provide an entrance to the new housing estate of Truggers.
Why the brick wall rises and falls as it does is a mystery to me, but I am sure that there was a jolly good reason at the time.
The Large Version shows the Horsham Road as it was before the bridge was built. From the left can be seen part of the “Rabbit Hutches”, Wind Hill House, the butcher’s shop with the small gable, the shop at Hoadley’s corner, Summers Edge with the lop-sided gable, and Hillbury Cottage.
