I was brought up in one of the first houses to be built on the Nevill. I have tried to locate photos of the Nevill during it's construction but have never managed to find any. Anyone seen any?

Yeah, Reeves definitely have some. I bought my parents an old photo taken from the castle looking out over the paddock towards where Neville is now before it was built from Reeves, they have quite a collection.

I think our next door neighbour `s father worked on its construction , was it really built in the 1920s , that must make it one of the very first new style houses .
I `d have said 30s as the earliest which is still pretty old for that kind of estate ? Only guessing though

I can remember when the houses on The Gallops were built but that wasn't so long ago in comparison.

My house was built in 1936, possibly one of the later additions to Nevilland.

I think you will find the first buildings were five small houses scattered across the area that is now the estate, I believe they were built by a Mr Beck, one is up a lane behind Northway,also one is in Crossway, not sure about the others, the estate was built by the Ringmer building works if that helps.
