Withdean Farmhouse

Withdean Farmhouse and adjacent cottages shortly before their demolition in 1963 This was home to my grandparents for some years. Behind them, were farm buildings stretching back to the railway embankment.
The farmlands extended westwards from the railway to the Dyke Road. For many years in the occupation of Hole’s Dairies, the buildings were derelict when the black & white photographs were taken on 24 September 1961.
