Durrants, Chailey c1905
My thanks to Hannah Dennison, a former inhabitant of Durrants on Chailey Green, for sending me this superb photo of Durrants which dates to around 1905. The house behind Durrants has long since disappeared. Does anyone know the name of it or when it was demolished?
Otto Gatland, born in 1847, owned the smithy to the left of Durrants and worked there between 1887 and 1913. He died in 1915. Durrants, now a four-bedroomed property, was last sold in 2013 for £650,000. The photo below appears on the rightmove website.
