Alfriston, East Sussex, UK

Post Date: April 23, 2022 by josiemounsey

The medieval village of Alfriston, close to the historic town of Lewes, lies in the valley of the River Cuckmere. It is well worth a visit – lots to see, great places to eat, and the local people are extremely friendly and helpful. It’s like stepping back in time.

The village green is called the Tye.
In the centre of the Tye is the Church of St. Andrew, which has Saxon origins, although most of the building dates from the 14th Century.
On the edge of the Tye is the Alfriston Clergy House, the first property acquired by The National Trust.
In March, there were banks of daffodils everywhere.
There are plenty of places to eat in the village. Meals at “The Singing Kettle” are delicious and hearty, and the service excellent. Another option is the general store, where they make up sandwiches to order, which we tried another day, and there were at least ten types of chutney from which to choose.
