Rather interesting Alfriston facts
Did you know that the first building acquired by the National Trust was the Clergy House in Alfriston? The Trust bought the 14th century hall-house overlooking the green there in 1896, paying £10 for it, not a bad price for a thatched timber-framed house in idyllic surroundings. It is suggested, though can’t be proved, that a small carving on a cornice inspired the NT’s oak-leaf emblem.
