This photograph of 57, Farm Hill Woodingdean, the right hand house, was taken January 1963. We lived here from September 1961 to April 1964. At one time the snow was up to the top of the front gates. Anyone remember that big snow fall? We had just got back from a visit to Tunbridge Wells and found the front entrance blocked.
A strange thing that happened a few days earlier on our way to Kent, occurred just outside Uckfield. We were taking it easy due to the snow, and reached a straight bit of road when the car following tore by and rushed off into the distance. About a mile on there is a bad bend, and on the left of this was a very large wall of snow. To our surprise, sticking out of this snow was the rear of the car that had passed us, embedded into the snow as if in a tunnel up to the rear passenger door.
