In 1905, as this photograph shows, this was just a country lane, leading from Patcham village to Old Boat Corner, and thence via Coldean Lane, to Lewes. Then, as now, the cottages were known as Drove Cottages and were occupied by workers on the nearby farms. Note the old barn, on the left, now the Barn Methodist Church. The stretch of the Drove, from here to the Downs, was also known as the Ladies Mile.
