SCENES OF ANCIENT INTEREST AT GODSTONE, ON THE OLD ROAD TO BRIGHTON

SCENES OF ANCIENT INTEREST AT GODSTONE, ON THE OLD ROAD TO BRIGHTON

The road from Purley through the Caterham Valley to Godstone is now called the Eastbourne Road, but was once the main route for Brighton. The "Whyte Harte" (top) claims to have served the need of travellers of this road since the reign of Richard II, and its old outside chimney stack, newly topped, is a feature of the exterior. There is a pleasant village green and a famous pond. The lower view was taken farther down the road and shows the old inn in the distance. Godstone is a corruption of Gatesden.
