Two photographs joined to provide a panoramic view of the farm buildings and the Moulsecombe area. They were taken from the hill to the south, in 1938, before the farm was broken up. Compare this view with the two 1889 photographs of Moulsecombe on the previous pages because several features appear in both, namely the long, low barn, the wall and the wooden gate though there is no sign of the pond in the later view. Note Moulsecombe School, Hodshrove Farm and Moulsecombe Way. The special school, Woodside, built here in 1956.

Additional Information: The original special school was at the end of Hollingdean Road on the corner of Lewes Road. They were only prefabs put up as a temporary school c.1900 and called Hollingdean Road School. When Coombe Road School was built the children transferred and the buildings became a special school. The school then moved to a site near the College of Technology building built in the 1960's and the prefabs became part of the Technical College until demolition in the last 10 years. It is now the site of the Latter Day Saints church (some temporary buildings)
