Caption for Sissinghurst, Village 1903: Here we see a fine display of weatherboarding along the empty and dusty main street. The faded pub sign is for the Bull Inn. Not far outside the village are the twin towers of Sissinghurst Castle with its beautiful gardens, once home to the author Vita Sackville West. Whilst at Sissinghurst she wrote her novel 'All Passion Spent', as well as poems and magazine articles.

Memories of Sissinghurst

This, I believe, is me as an 8-year-old shopping. This road is now so busy you can hardly get across it. The pub in the background has gone and so has the shop I am walking towards. At the time of this photo there were 5 shops, a butchers, a baker's, two pubs and a garage. Now there are two shops and a pub.
