I used to work in the shop in the photo at about the time the photo was taken. That company also had a depot in Junction road next to the pub and the railway crossing, and I also worked in that depot. I have very happy memories of those times; we (my wife Doris & I) bought our first house there in Slimbridge Road .
Does anyone recall the mansion house called Inholmes. It was at the very top of Cants Lane when I was a youngster (I am now 50). It was owned by Keymer Brick and Tile Company as I grew up and then sadly demolished to make way for the present housing estate. I would appreciate any photographs or memories.
I was born in Burgess Hill in 1957 and lived there until 17. My parents owned Herbert & Sons Sports good shop (later just Herberts) my grandparents originlly owned it as ran it as a sports shop and shoe repairs. I went to Junction Road Junior School. Wonderful memories
