Cliffe Hall

The adjacent Cliffe Hall offers excellent community facilities for events. It is not part of the Church – it belongs to the Cliffe Feoffees, a charitable trust (which also supports the church).

See the Cliffe Hall website or email the Hall Manager or call 07522 327301, or write to 28 Cliffe High Street, Lewes BN7 2AH.
