Alfriston Clergy House - National Trust

The Tye, Alfriston
Polegate BN26 5TL

The Clergy House is remarkable as a surviving example of a typical thatched Wealden Hall House dating back to the 14th century. It was probably built for a yeoman farmer and later passed into the possession of the church.

Anne of Cleves House

52 Southover High Street
Lewes BN7 1JA

Henry VIII granted this beautiful timber-framed house to his fourth wife, Anne of Cleves, as part of her divorce settlement. Let your imagination take you back to the 16th century as you wander through the kitchen or gaze at the rafters in the high roof of the hall. Collections: The Lewes Gallery tells the story of Lewes from the 15th century to modern times, the role of local resident Tom Paine, Lewes bonfire night traditions and the story of the Snowdrop Inn. Another gallery illustrates the important Wealden iron industry.
