Alfriston

Home to “The Clergy house”  –  the first National Trust Property  which was bought in 1896.

A very picturesque village with olde world pubs, tea rooms and a sweet shop set in the heart of The Cuckmere Valley.

There are spectacular views from the drive along Alfriston Road towards The seven sisters Country Park.

White horse of Alfriston

The first white horse here was cut in 1838 to commemorate Queen Victoria’s coronation. This horse was cut in 1924 and is now maintained by the National Trust.

 Long man of Wilmington  

The Long Man of Wilmington, Europe’s largest representation of the human form cut into the chalk of the South Downs, has baffled archaeologists and historians for hundreds of years. Many people are convinced that he is prehistoric, whilst others believe that he is the work of an artistic monk from the nearby Priory created between the 11th and 15th centuries.
