Animal Sanctuary Needs Volunteer Workmen

6th December 2015

Jane Sexton:

Hello,

Greenacres Animal Sanctuary on Stubb Lane houses mostly cats who have been subjected to dreadful ill treatment. They are in desparate need of help from semi skilled retired volunteers in order to build more sheds and small wooden huts as shelter. The wood is generously being supplied by a local company and the small staff there have had a wonderful man who builds small sheds and other genious things from odds and ends. He is now unable to give them any time as his work is taking up all his time, so we hope there might be some retired kind men in the Brede area who could help before winter sets in and things become dire. I am afraid no money is available just the satisfaction of knowing your efforts have helped sad animals learn to trust until they are hopefully well and rehomed. Anyone with their own ideas of what might be useful would be doubly worshipped!
I can be contacted on ejasexton@aol.com if anyone out there can help or you have a query.

Many thanks,

Jane Sexton
(Pottery Lane)

Carol,

Another idea perhaps is to log on to Landregistry.gov.uk. For £3 you should be able to see an old title document which should help you. The 'magic' website is reached through the High Weald online site and this (magic) has lots of very old information. I saw from some old maps that Springfield Cottages only appeared after WW11 but were clearly there far back in 1800s. That was through old-maps.co.uk

Hello Carol
I am racking my brain to remember who I spoke with but I contacted Rother Council archive people and someone there told me they have maps going back to 1600 +. I shall trawl through my emails tomorrow if I can and send you the link. I suspect these same people are bored witless so seem to jump at the chance of delving into their archives.

Regards,

Jane

Carol,

Have you tried looking at very old maps? We discovered our place in Brede was called St Nicolas until 1950.old-maps.co.uk or any search engine with old maps should show up the names of the cottages. I used a pre-WWII map but went back to 1850 as our house was built 1951 and I needed to know the history of the plot.
