Fairlight Church Tower
The church standing as it does at 536ft above sea level, and the tower a further 82 ft higher, provides a magnificent platform for viewing the surrounding area. This church is the only one that I know where the church encourages the bells to be rung by visitors. The first floor of the tower has the bell pulls, and the second floor, the bells - a bit noisy if you are passing while they are being rung.

Great Dixter House and Gardens

The house was built in the middle of the fifteenth century, and then restored by Sir Edwin Lutyens in 1910.
