Medieval marvel

When this early 15th-century Wealden hall house last changed hands in 1896, it became the first building under the ownership of a groundbreaking new charity, which this year celebrates its 125th anniversary. It was used as a residence for the local parish priest and was once part of Anne of Cleves’ estate, awarded to her as part of her divorce. Until 1977, the house was rented out – at one time two families lived here together. Since then, along with its medieval-style gardens, it has operated as a museum.
