Enlarged copies of small, old and badly faded original photographs by the mid-Victorian photographer, William Cornish. Most of the detail had already been lost on the originals. Fortunately the buildings are easily recognisable though the surrounding area has completely changed. This view shows the Lodge at the entrance to the Extra-Mural Cemetery standing in the country setting of rural Lewes Road. The north wing of the Lodge and dwelling rooms behind were obviously built much later. Dates unknown and cannot be established, but I would say with some confidence between 1857 and 1862.
