The original moated manor at Brambletye dates back to the Doomsday book and if you care to look on an OS map you’ll find the moat still there. In 1631 a newer house was built a little to the east; a larger grand, ostentatious house, but sadly it didn’t last very long and now little remains. However what there is still impressive.
Julia Hartley and I take a walk to find it, crossing the old East Grinstead, Groombridge and Tunbridge Wells railway line which now, thanks to Sir Richard Beeching, is a delightful footpath.
