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?

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 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.
