Project by The Sussex Archaeological Society

The Priest House stands in a traditional cottage garden in the picturesque village of West Hoathly.

It was owned in turn by Henry VIII, Thomas Cromwell, Anne of Cleves, Mary I and Elizabeth I. 

While it is a fascinating place to visit, furnished with 17th and 18th century country furniture and domestic objects, and over 170 culinary, medicinal and household herbs planted in the garden, we need your help to safeguard its future. 

With challenging economic conditions being felt right across the heritage sector, our role as a guardian of Sussex’s heritage is becoming increasingly difficult. You can help us undertake important conservation work, enhancing the experience for all who visit and safeguarding these wonderful properties for future generations to enjoy.  

We specifically need your help in order to carry out essential structural repairs to prevent rain damage to this prized property.  

The Friends of the Priest House have generously pledged £1500 towards the work, but we need your support to raise more and ensure the work can be completed.

Please consider donating, as every contribution, no matter the amount, helps us reach our goal.
