Photographs of Fircroft Cottage taken on 26 October 1969. The reverse view. The cottage seen from within the vacant ground and looking towards Varndean Road. the cottage was enclosed in a very small garden behind the high fence. There was no vehicular access between here and Fircroft through this ground so the assumption must be that this was originally the gardener’s cottage since doubtless the house domestic staff lived in. Now, in 1970, the cottage seems to be doomed as the present tenants of the Corporation are under notice and it is likely it will be demolished and a road driven through when comprehensive redevelopment of the whole area of 10 acres takes place in the future.
