Scope and content

Cutting from 'The Mid-Sussex Times' of an article by R. C. Chandler describing the history of miller Fred Sayers at Cobb's Mill in Hurstpierpoint. The article provides details of the typical miller's life and mentions the owner of the mill at the time, Charles Packham.

Hole and Son of Burgess Hill were mentioned as the workers on this project.
