Caffyns, Corner of King Street and Little King Street, East Grinstead, West Sussex, 2004 • A round-towered deco garage with mossy tiled clock eternally stuck at noon. Built by two local businessmen in 1935, this development brought much-needed work in the depression, but was later considered an eyesore and is now just a hole in the ground awaiting a Travelodge. An earlier deco building, the Radio Centre, was demolished in 1983. There’s a thoughtful local museum article on Caffyns here, lamenting the “passing of an era”.
