Coffee Club -Alfriston Clergy House – 18th July 2017
Alfriston Clergy House was the first built property to be acquired by the National Trust. It was purchased in 1896 for £10. Today the 650 year old timber-framed house is set in an idyllic, albeit small, cottage garden featuring an orchard, a vegetable garden and a rose terrace. The National Trust has scheduled Garden Tours on one Tuesday each month through the summer. I have checked it out with the staff and they have said that it will be fine for us to go along for the garden tour on 18th July at 11.30 am – 12.30 pm. Alfriston Village is a very picturesque village with lots of opportunities for architectural photography in the various old churches.
We will meet in the Apiary Tea Garden/Coffee Shop which has indoor and outdoor seating and a covered terrace if it is lightly raining. Alternatively some members might like to go straight to the Clergy House at 11.30 am for the tour and then we can have lunch afterwards. For more information check out the National Trust website.
There is some parking, including disabled spaces, if from the A27 you take the Alfriston turnoff and drive through the village. There is a sign to Alfriston Clergy on the left hand side of the road. If you take that turning and follow it round there isn’t a yellow line and space for quite a few cars.
