Must see · History Museum · Museum
Michelham Priory is the site of a former Augustine Priory in Upper Dicker, East Sussex, England, United Kingdom. The surviving buildings are owned and administered by the Sussex Archaeological Society and are Grade I and Grade II listed.
A T-shaped stone-built structure, the east and north wings date from the 13th century and the west wing from the 16th century. The north wing, originally the Priors Lodging, comprises three storeys with an attic and the other two wings two storeys. The roof is tiled. The whole is surrounded by a moat, enclosing an area of almost 8 acres (3.2 ha).
A watermill in the grounds of the priory has been restored to working order and is open to the public.

  • Beautiful house (very knowledgeable volunteer who really entertained the grandchildren and included them in the discussion), grounds, playground and surprisingly quiet for a Saturday (31st August). Went there as a family (10 of us) and had a picnic in the grounds. Well worth a visit. Be aware that Gift Aiding increases the entrance fee - so choose not to.
  • A very special beautiful place. Tons of history and atmosphere. They also host the Sussex Guild of designer makers of contemporary crafts. Stunning world class work. Well worth a visit. Best place to get a unique present for the special person in your life. Or to treat yourself!
