The altered appearance of this area, 64 years later, on 31 July 1974 (see previous). Nevill Road, commenced at the Sackville Road end in 1932, was extended along this stretch in 1934/5, and to avoid taking the anticipated traffic round the bend and through West Blatchington, Nevill Road was carried straight on to join Toads Hole Road down in the valley. However, the road to the windmill was widened, built up and named Court Farm Road. This can be clearly seen in this photograph, and the third house from the left is roughly on the site of the cottage in the other view. Similarly, the footpath leading to the Waterworks Cottage is still there, the entrance being just past the tall lamp standard (right) and passing in front of the white-doored garage. Incidentally, I lived in that house, 167, Nevill Road, for 21 years, from 1936 until 1957.
