Upcoming Events

The East Grinsteaad Bookshop
By the Fountain

invite you to their inaugural
Literary Dinner
on Monday 19 September 2022

We are thrilled to invite you to dinner with Kevin Last, author of The Diary of William Young of Cotchford Farm. Kevin will speaking about the influence of people on place, tracing the history of Cotchford Farm through previous owners.

Kevin's ancestors, the Young family, farmed Cotchford in the 1840s. Their story, told through a family diary, sets the Farm in the rural  setting.  Post First World War, A A Milne and his family moved down from London, and the house became the centre of the world of Winnie the Pooh. Later came Rolling Stone Brian May, bringing wild parties which culminated in his being found dead in the swimming pool.
