Explore inside Alfriston Clergy House

Alfriston Clergy House in East Sussex is a 14th-century building that’s full of history. It's also the house that started it all for us. One of the National Trust's founders, Octavia Hill, made a passionate case for this historical building in 1896, and spurred on our first fundraising campaign to restore it to its original state. Take a journey through time when you watch our new video.
