In Search of Old Brambletye Manor near Forest Row

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.
