NotesWAM XXII 314: 'There were ancoient maypoles in West Dean and East Grinstead: that at the former place is still standing [I find it marked on a map of 1791], that at East Grunstead fell a year or two ago, and no-one has thought it worth while to re-erect it, which is a pity, as the May Day festivities were maintained as long as it lasted.'
