Balcombe Lane, Handcross with horse and cart

The postcard shows a section of Balcombe Lane in Handcross about ¾ mile from Gravelpit Corner. To the left of the horse and cart is the row of High Beeches Cottages laying back about 50 yards from the road. The entrance to the cottages is just round the corner.
The man on the cart has turned round for the photograph, but I still cannot recognise him!
On the right appears to be a footpath but I’m not sure if it exists today.
The Large Version shows a close up. In the far distance there appears to be someone approaching riding a motor cycle combination.
