Flashback Friday: White Mare Cottages, Limpsfield Chart

The lovely White Mare Cottages on Stoneleigh Road that overlook Limpsfield Chart and the National Trust land were first built in the 1800s, but by the 1970s they had fallen into disrepair and become largely derelict.

A local resident and business partner acquired all four cottages in 1980 and set about rebuilding them.  The photos were taken in May 1980 – 37 year ago – as building work started.    

For any historians amongst you, I also have the beautiful handwritten title deeds for all four cottages, dating back to 1845.
