Photograph album gems
These photographs are from my mother’s album. My grandparents lived at The Barn in Greenways, Ovingdean and we spent our summer holidays there.
At that time, in the 1950s, Ovingdean was still a reasonably small village and Ovingdean Farm was very much a working farm.
The slideshow contains a rare shot of the village pond and you can just see Peartree Cottages on the right. This dates the photograph to pre-1932 as the cottages were demolished to improve the road which previously had a very sharp bend.
