My Gran and Grandad George and Alice Cook were married here on Christmas Day 1913. They are also buried here.

I went to Worth School for my final yeat at junior school and took my "11+" there; for some reason a number of us moved to Worth from Three Bridges Junior school. I am not sure of the year but think it must have been 1953/4. I do remember the football pitch had quite an uphill slope!

My great-grandmother's family were farmers in Worth, and nearby Copthorne and Charlwood in the mid-nineteenth century.
