Beckley in East Sussex Village Guide

Horsepen and Christopher Bush

I would be grateful if anyone in the village had any information about Christopher Bush who lived at Horsepen during the 30s and 40s. He was my great Uncle and I am co-writing his biography. Avril MacArthur

    Hi, I came across your message – my mother and grandfather used to live at Horsepen. I have quite a lot of old photos and if you are interested I can send them to you. I would think that my mum lived there around 1950’s.

    Good luck with your searching!

    Hello! Delighted to get your message! All I have is a 10 page copy from English Heritage of the sale particulars from 1952 when Christopher sold the property-wouldn’t it be strange if it was your mother and grandfather who bought it then? This is very detailed and does have photographs but it would be good to have any you may have too. I also have a cousin’s memories of staying there which are quite amusing.Kind regards, Avril
