This delightful village offers stunning views across the Rother valley and south to the coast.

Its highest point, at more than 600 feet, is on Brightling Down and is marked by a monument to ‘Mad Jack’ Fuller, a local ironmaster and MP who died in 1834.

He built a number of follies in the locality and was both sponsor and mentor to the scientist Michael Faraday.
