    Is the Brightling graveyard (and Mad Jack’s Mausoleum) open late in the afternoon and/or early evening?

      They are outdoors and the gate is not locked.

    Just wondering if there are any older members of the Brightling community that may need shopping doing for them during this Covid-19 crisis. I am happy to help to shop and deliver to help those that should be staying at home to keep well. Obviously no charge just to help those that need it. I live in the village and am a mum of two. Does anyone know who I could contact to find out who may need some help?

    Hi, I am an Australian researching my Relf family history which goes back as far as the early 1800’s in Brightling. According to the census, my ancestors lived in Stonesdown Cottage (1851), Battle Road (1861), Grants Cottage (1871). I am confident these are the same place but just named differently. Are those places still standing? Could anyone explain the differences in names? I’ve looked on google maps and can find a Stonesdown Cottage in the area I assume it was – down the road from Hollingbrook Farm. Where there lots of families living in the one ‘house’? Or lots of Stonesdown cottages called different names depending on who owned them? Lot of questions. The more I look, the more questions I have 🙂 Any information or even photos would be gratefully received. Thank you.

    Hi, Just wondered whether anyone has found some keys in the lay-by in Battle Road just above and opposite side from Grants Cottages. Possibly dropped this Saturday evening (18th July). Comprises key fob and small penknife on the key ring. If so please could you kindly ring 07860 362487. Thanks
