Road named after ex-editor

An editor of the East Grinstead Observer, who held the post for 51 years, has had a road named after him.

Wallace Henry Hills, who died in 1932, was also a historian and local councillor.

Hills Road runs up the Imberhorne Industrial Estate to help delivery drivers find their way around.

Local historian Michael Leppard told the Observer: “He’s someone who played a big part in the life of the town.

“I
thought for a long time he really needed to have some kind of public
recognition and one way of doing that is with a road sign.”
