Growing old, gracefully

Weeks could be spent drawing together material on the Parish's past. Luckily the professionals have beaten us to it with a comprehensive supply of maps, pictures and info at Discovering Barcombe and Hamsey.

Better still, there is a wealth of recent history and memories to be found at Barcombe Past – though as this is a closed Facebook group, you will need to sign up to see what's there or to contribute.

Alternatively, the wider picture is on offer in the Sussex Archaeological Society's extensive site: www.sussexpast.co.uk.

And of course there's a great deal going on at Bridge Farm, Barcombe Mills: for the latest on the site's Roman heritage, visit www.facebook.com/culverarchaeology.
