Does anyone know anything about the Y shaped thing behind Lloyd's pharmacy. It's covered in pebbles. Can't quite work it out?

It used to form part of a building that sat behind the pharmacy (which was once the doctors surgery). There was a building used for various activities, St Johns Ambulance meetings, youth groups etc. I think the 'Y shaped thing' held up part of the entrance roof. Building was taken down years and years ago, but nothing has ever really been done with the land and the structure has been there ever since.

It was part of a building that used to be a youth club. Got demolished by the Ringmer Massive, on a particularly wild night. But they couldn't shift that bit of concrete. Great site for a couple of individually designed houses, but nobody seems to want to do anything with it.

The Y was the pillar for the entrance and stood for “youth” as it was where the youth club building was years ago.
The land will get used when they build on the football club and anchor field garages.

a monument to someone in Ringmer who was a bit of a Y Front.

The land belongs to Lewes District Council, and they are redeveloping it with their usual speed, enthusiasm and efficiency.

The Y Fronts are .................LDC. Aren't they the ones who tried to block Amex Stadium ?

Isn't that where the young of Ringmer are sacrificed if they dare leave the village?

Worst recorded Lewes river Ouse flooding January 1772 (235 cubic metres per second dishcarge). October 1852 2nd worst (230 cmps).... more
I like the walk along the ouse to Hamsey church, the view from the top of the Castle, Pells pool, the antique shops and boot fair, the lion in the window of the 15c bookshop, keere street
