Readings from an Historic Survey, Monday 28 August 2017, noon

A Bridge Cottage Heritage Centre, Uckfield event

The Archbishop of Canterbury’s Manor of South Malling extended north-east from South Malling proper up into the Weald. Various surveys of its holdings were made over time, and August 2017 is the 400th anniversary of the 1617 survey of the Manor of South Malling.

Bridge Cottage in Uckfield marks the occasion with local historian Brian Philips reading out all of the Uckfield entries in the 1617 survey. This will take place outside Bridge Cottage at 12 noon on Bank Holiday Monday 28th August 2017.

These entries paint an intriguing picture of what Uckfield looked like in the 17th century.

In addition, the Gallyard Tudor Dancers will also be giving a display of dance and costume from the period.

Venue: Bridge Cottage Heritage Centre, High Street, Uckfield, East Sussex, TN22 1AZ

This is a free event, all welcome
