Have you visited the Rother valley railway site, they are currently hoping to rebuild the connection to robertsbridge from bodiam

Their planning application for this includes the site of The Clappers.

The house may have been demolished as part of the northstreet flood defences constructed in 2003/2004, if it was still there in 2000 it would have been badly hit by the 2000 floods

Hi Roy.
I notice your connection with Robertsbridge.

I am in contact with a lady called Nicola who is trying to trace her grandfather who was an Italian POW in that area. He worked on Walter’s Farm Poppinghole Lane, or one close by. The lady was called Rosa and they had a son called Albert John Jarrett (John) I would be grateful for any help or information that you may have about the wartime.

Many Thanks

Karen
