These two small cottages, probably built when the Lewes Railway was constructed in the mid-1840s, had seen remarkable changes during their long life. As seen from earlier photographs they first adjoined this bridge across what was little more than the country road from Brighton to Lewes. Their peace was disturbed first by the building of the South Moulsecombe Council Estate in 1921/1923, and more so when North Moulsecombe followed a few years later. The London to Brighton and South Coast Railway built many of these dual cottages for their Gangers etc. Local examples can be found at Mill Lane, Patcham and to the rear of the Brangwyn Estate.
