"HENRY VII's HUNTING LODGE & OLD PLACE" Lindfield Things to Do Tip by balhannah
Lindfield Things to Do: 5 reviews and 10 photos
What a pretty thatched roofed Cottage this was!
I noticed the name, "Old Place," and I wondered what its history was. Well, Old Place was down the lane, and no entry was permitted! I have seen photo's of Old Place, a timber-framed, late 16th century gabled building.
At the beginning of the lane, is a lovely Cottage with a garden to match, and it's situated next to "Old Place." The Cottage was built in 1390.
It was King Henry VII's Hunting Lodge, and also was used as a "Poor House."
A poorhouse in Victorian times, saw poverty as a dishonourable state caused by a lack of the moral virtue of industriousness.
Address: High street, Lindfield
