Photographs of Fircroft Cottage taken on 26 October 1969. The cottage as seen from Varndean Road and its entrance gate. It was separated from Fircroft by about 100 yards and adjoined the large area of vacant ground which ran from south to north behind all three houses. This ground may well have been part of the Fircroft Estate at one time. Access could be gained to it through a gate at the far end of the Fircroft garden. On the other hand I was told that at the turn of the century the three owners of the houses grazed their respective cattle on this land, then mostly meadows and not so wooded as it was later.
