Medieval thatched cottage and picturesque garden. This 14th-century thatched Wealden ‘hall house’ was the first building to be acquired by the National Trust in 1896.

It has an unusual chalk and sour milk floor and its pretty cottage garden is in an idyllic setting beside Alfriston’s parish church, with views across the meandering River Cuckmere.

St. Bartholomew's Church

Ann Street, Brighton, BN1 4GP
Tel: 01273 620491     E-mail:

St. Bartholomew's, a magnificent, almost overpowering church built entirely of brick, was undoubtedly the most important of the projects undertaken by Arthur Douglas Wagner. It was designed by a local architect Edmund Street in 1872, and aroused a great deal of controversy - critics called it a 'cheese warehouse', a 'monster excrescence' and 'Wagner's Folly'. There's no doubt that the design and dimensions of St Bartholomew's are unusual: it has one of the largest rose windows and it has the tallest nave of any church in the country.
