Geoffrey Webb was a renowned stain glass artist in the last century. He lived in East Grinstead and had his studio/workshop here too. He painted unique posters for the local Repertory Company, of which he was a member.
Town bands were very popular in the last century. The Felbridge Band performed at most town functions. The stand, which advertised their presence, is in the shape of a lyre. The March was composed especially for them.
The East Grinstead Pottery made many useful household items, milk coolers, flower pots and animal feeder. It also made more decorative objects: finials and ridge tiles for houses and garden ornaments like this monk’s head.
The abundant clay in the area was utilised for making bricks to build the houses for the growing population. When turned out of the moulds the bricks were fired in clamps sometimes containing 30,000 bricks.
