Viewed from the raised footpath, the summit of Perrymount Road merges into the Broadway. The Broadway cinema is the large white 1930s-style building on the right of the photograph; it opened in 1932, and stood here for 20 years. It was then used by J W Upton Sons, as a furniture store, and then it was demolished in 1987. The site is now an office complex for Lloyds Bank.

J W Upton 1919

In 1899 My grandfather Mr J W Upton began
cabinet making and by 1919 he had established his own business in Haywards Heath, West Sussex.

At this road junction is the Cuckfield branch of J W Upton (the Haywards Heath furniture store), next to Lloyds Bank (right). The attractive clock still survives, which is just as well, as the building is called Clock House. Broad Street leads off into the distance, and is the main route to Haywards Heath.
