Although long closed to commercial traffic, rowing boats could be hired and rowed downriver as far as Fittleworth for 6d per day. This is now [2009] silted up with little water flowing through it. Note the difference in water levels to photos below

The Wharf


Now overgrown and silted up, this canal cut brought boats from the river to The Wharf. The water flowing through comes from South Pond.
 

Wharf Cottage


My family The Dowlings lived in Wharf Cottage during Edwardian times and appear there on the 1911 Census. My Great Grandfather Thomas and his wife Rosina lived here with their children. It was a great surprise to find these pictures.

According to the 1901 Census my great great grandparents lived here with their children.
They were John and Sarah Weston. He was a shepherd.
