East Grinstead was laid out as a borough in the early part of the 13th century with its wide High Street used as a market place. It was flanked by 48 plots and each plot, known as a burgage, had a house on it with a piece of town land or ‘portland’ running behind it, the main purpose of which was to provide food for the occupants - agriculture in an urban setting - Sackville House is one such house.
We are opening Sackville House in association with Heritage Open Days. Come along and learn more about this fascinating building and its most recent restoration made possible by a grant from the Culture Recovery Fund.
Free Admission and leaflets on the building's history and children's activity sheets will be available. Click here for location.
