Alfriston Clergy House

I took a trip to Alfriston, and the Clergy House. This house dates back to the 1350s, and was built around the same time as the church next door.

It's an extremely picturesque little village, well worth a visit if you're heading to see nearby Eastbourne and the Seven Sisters.


The pub.

This way..

The church: the cathedral of the South Downs.


The front door of the clergy house.

Well stocked flower garden.


Fruit garden.








Lavender.

Onions.


And for some reason, poppies..







The main hall.


This symbol, not seen very well here, is thought to have inspired the National Trust's logo, as this was the first property acquired by the Trust.
