Tilgate Forest Lodge, Pease Pottage

This is a fairly recent photograph of Tilgate Forest Lodge framed by two giant redwood trees. On its introduction to Britain in 1853 the species were named Wellingtonia to commemorate the recently deceased Duke of Wellington who had died in the previous year.

My mother worked for the very kind Norris family in the 1960s.
I have a picture, painted by their daughter Jean Norris, of one of the trees.
I have many fond childhood memories of spending time with Heather the farmer, and other staff, Amanda and Gabrielle, Mrs Stacey and her son Martin.
