Comments about this page
So interested to discover your site. My grandfather, Samuel Chantry Adams, lived at Wanderdown pictured on top of the hill in the middle two photos. He built it in the 1920s out of S.E. and Chatham railway carriages transported from Newhaven (Rudyard Kipling complained about them being stuck in snow at Rottingdean cliffs en route). My grandfather (who I understood founded the Ovingdean Village Hall and was a keen card player) had a sharp mind, and lived at Wanderdown until his death in July 1963. My family built Shore Lark in Ovingdean Road in 1939 and we lived there until 1957 when we moved to run a pub in mid-Sussex. Laurie Hollands was our housekeeper and family friend and she lived at Sunset, Ovingdean Road, until her death in June 2006. We lived at Wanderdown after my grandfather's death and sold the land in the 1970s when we moved to 106 Greenways on the corner of Ainsworth Avenue.

I was born on 4th April 1936 in a place called "Upalong" on Longhill Avenue. It was described to me as being made of tin.
