    I also have a picture of Mermaid Inn by S J Headley – looks like pen and ink with watercolour – not sure if print or original. On back is written in pencil “Mermaid Inn 1/2″ Brown Hog”!! Can you throw any light on this?

    Hi, My father grew up in Rye attending the grammer school(he was born 1923 – Cyril William Bullett) I was going to sell a print?? by your grandfather of the windmill and was looking for more info when I found this. I know my father bought original Rye Pottery so maybe this isn’t a print and it could be an etching. My grandfather was an engineer on the River Rother and the family include Ashingdon’s. I spent a lot of my childhood in Rye – it’s changed a lot!!

    Hi, how are you? I’ve been meaning to make contact for some time but had trouble tracing you. Now that you’ve picked yourself up from the floor if you feel like getting in touch I’d be pleased to hear from you.

    Hello there,
    I think I have tried before to make contact concerning Mister Heady. When visiting Icklesham I met him when he visited the Barker family who ran a B&B in the Oast House in Icklesham. I still have e print of the pendrawing he made of the Oast House. I wonder I the original still is in one peice and migth be for sale. But I would also like to know how things went with him.

    Hi, I apologize if I am writing this the wrong way, but I have acquired a painting by S. J. Heady of the “Old Pump House” and it has a “Heady” signature on it. Is there any way to know which one of you signed it and what it may be worth? Thanks for any help you can offer. [email protected]

    Hello, Peter

    Greetings after 40 years.

    The original print of the Oast House is still intact and in good condition. The same is not quite true of the Oast House itself, which was split (rather well) by a later owner into a handful of conjoined houses.

    Hello Guy,
    That is a very long time ago, first my mailadres: [email protected]. Dear Guy that print of the ole Oast House from the days mom and dad ran the B&B has been with me all my live, why? Those day in Icklesham when I stayed with them were the luckiest days in my whole live. I even drove the red mini to do the shopping. Time has flown by Guy. But the old Desert Rat and his Dutch love are still close by. Memory lane. I remember the Oast House the way it was. With that lady in the cottage who once was meriied to a Dutch Naval Officer. We had tea very often. It was so quiet there in those days. We are getting on Guy. I lived in the Staes and Canada but rerturned to Holland. Mary ans I got divorced ages ago. How are you and how did you end up in the States and why? And of course whereabouts do you live.
    Please keep in tough Guy and take care and of course have a nice one,
    Regards,
    Peter
