69. Hurst Green Halt, Oxted is shown here on a postcard published by M. Richardson, Post Office, Holland, Oxted and posted in 1937. The halt was formerly a wooden erection on the south side ofthe road and was opened on 1st1 une 1907. Re-sited and built in brick, the modem Hurst Green Station was opened in June 1961.

70. This postcard, posted in 1914, shows the wooden platforms of Hurst Green Halt and its gas lighting. Surrounded by farm land, the railway separates in the distance on its way to Edenbridge (left) and Lingfield and East Grinstead (right).

71. Richardson's postcard shows the Hurst Green Road on its way towards Oxted a year or so before the Great War. The furthest houses on the left are Nos. 2 and 4 and the white gable on the right belongs to Laleham Cottages built by pupils and friends in memory of Hannah Pipe in 1900. The photographer was standing on the corner of Mill Lane.

Ne"~ Holland, Oxted, Surrey.

72. The Hurst Green Road is shown looking away from Oxted in a Homewood postcard posted in 1907. Nunappleton Way has replaced the footpath on the left of the picture and the modem Bromford Close is on the right. The house second from the left was built in 1894.

73. Looking towards Hurst Green and Oxted, the gabled house on the .left is today on the corner of Nunappleton Way which leads to a footbridge over the railway. Holland Lane and the modem Hawthoms are both right hand turnings just outside of the photograph which was posted in 1917.

74. Comfort's Farm Cottage is photographed in 1913 for another Richardson postcard. The ivy has been removed but the cottage is still easily recognisable although there are no longer any timbers visible at the side. The cottage, which stands opposite The Hawthoms, may be older than the eighteenth century date attributed to it.
