Discover Lamb House
Lamb House, in Rye, East Sussex, was once home to the writer E.F. Benson. More recently it was used as part of the set for the BBC's new adaptation of his popular Mapp and Lucia novels.
On open days (Tuesday, Friday and Saturday) you can find out more about the filming at Lamb, thanks to a small display.

Banish the darkness of winter and step into the light...
