  • This site is located to the south of Gardner Street, (which was the original name of the village, Herstmonceux), near Hailsham

  • This was an unusual layout as the scheme encompassed local facilities, such as the bowling green which adjoins the football club to the north and east
  • Planning Consent was gained for 70 residential units
  • The agreement in relation to the final servicing of the site was tortuous, but with tenacity was finally agreed
  • The site was sold by Gleeson Developments to Thakeham Homes/Clarion Housing Association in March 2018
  • Herstmonceux Castle (some 2 miles (3.2 km) south-east of the village) is a former site of the Royal Greenwich Observatory
