1939 Registration for England
Who was living at Lower Bevendean Farm in 1939?
Photographs of Bevendean from local newspapers.
The farm house is just visible among the trees in the centre. Norman Allcorn commented that the stack-yard to the west of the farm-yard can be seen in the background.
Juggs Lane to Lewes is visible as it climbs the Downs out of the valley on the left of the picture.
Hogtough Bottom can be seen in the middle distance.
Three horses are needed to pull the corn binder, which cut the corn and bundled it into sheaves which were stood up to dry in the field before being carted away to store in corn ricks. Norman Allcorn thinks that it is possible that the man driving the horses pulling the binder is his grandfather Frank John Allcorn as he usually wore that type of hat.
Norman also commented on the fact that horses are being used rather than a tractor.
