Comments about this page

I moved from Woodingdean to Rottingdean in 1975, after marrying Maureen Grigg. For a while we lived in Ely Drive while our bungalow was being built in Falmer Road next to Meadow Parade. Maureen's grandfather Mr Painter developed the estates around Brighton, Portslade, Mile Oak as well as Ely Drive, Ely Crescent, Meadow Close, and Meadow Parade. Mr Painter actually lived in Mile Oak. Maureen and I were married in St Margaret's Church, Rottingdean on June 15, 1957 and caused a minor stir by walking to the Plough Inn for our wedding breakfast, rather than taking the car laid on for us. That day the weather was very, very hot with very bright sunshine. A better day we could not have wished for. MORE TO COME . . . .
