The windmill garden was open for teas at one time. I went there in 1957 with John Foster Forbes and some friends from the Brighton College of Arts and Crafts. Nice garden, nice tea and sandwiches.

As a young professional footballer in the late 1970s Waterhall conjured up only one picture: Pain and torture. Messers Mullery, Aitkin, Gutteridge and sometimes Wilson had us running up that "Hill" until we dropped. Top players were physically sick in the pursuit of fitness. We had Chris Carter leading us on our cross country runs and God knows how most of us made it back. I do remember Graham Winstanley, Chris Cattlin and myself attempting to take a short cut one day only to be chased by a not very happy bull. It was Hell at Waterhall.

I lived at Waterhall Golf Club from 1947-54 as my parents were stewards there. We lived in the wooden house, and I walked to Patcham school each day. Always windy there, and we were cut off by snow at times. Not sure when the wooden house or the farm buildings went. Does anyone know ?

My great grandma was brought up on Waterhall farm. Did anyone know the Paveys when they were there? Early 1900s

Yes, my great grand parents lived there and my grandfather was born there in late 1880 onwards.

If Julia Johnson would like more information regarding the Pavey family she can contact me on:  I knew your grandmother Margaret Knight, she was my step-auntie as her brother George married my Mum.

The 1911 Census shows my Great-Grandparents (Henry & Margery Capelin), plus some of their children and a great-grandchild, living at: 'Waterhall Patcham, Preston, Sussex, England. Henry was described as a 'Carter On Farm' on the census return. I wonder if he worked at Waterhall Farm and the family lived in one of its 'tied' cottages?
