Historic Building Summary of Valerie Manor

Back in March this year Pat Nightingale of the Beeding & Bramber Local History Society approached us about the possibility of her researching the history of Valerie Manor. This is something that we had wanted to do for some time as we know there are plenty of stories of old about the manor and the place is steeped in history – so we enthusiastically agreed. We met with Pat a couple of times and she began her extensive research. She also introduced us to Maggie Henderson, a historic buildings archaeologist, who visited us back in April for an initial survey of the building.

Together, they have produced this fascinating historic building summary (below) which we are very pleased to be able to share with you. Many thanks to Pat and Maggie for their exhaustive work on the history of our lovely home.
