The history portal for Shoreham-by-Sea
i always regarded the Dove Cote at the rear of Buckingham Farm as part of that property
and the nearby area, was the locality of the Dew Pond…just between Downsway, and Chanctonbury Drive… As a boy I weeded a field of carrots, for Farmer Nye, on a location
known as Black Patch…long before the houses were built. I worked Summer Holidays
thinning and weeding crops about 1947/48 .Sixpence a morning.
You have some lovely memories of the area Gerry – if only the planners had had the foresight to save the central farm buildings as well, in the same way as they have at Old Shoreham farm. As soon as we can set up the photo templates we’ll be including a lot more of Buckingham Farm.
