south west of
Court House Farm

TQ 5005 36/135B 13.10.52.


Alciston was a grange of Battle Abbey. This was part of the grange buildings.
Large L shaped building which is one of the longest barns in the county
and one of the finest. Probably C16. Faced with flints with red brick
quoins. Hipped tiled roof. Hipped waggon entrance and two dormers on the
south. Similar entrance with one dormer on west side and without any dormer
on the north. Inside, the roof has alternate tie-beams with diagonal braces
and tall curved quasi-braces almost like a cruck with a small piece across
at the top instead of a point.
