On 7th July Geoff and Jackie Heath are organising a visit to Charleston where the Bloomsbury set did all their paintings and poetry. They have booked a room in the beautiful new barn for a buffet lunch at 12.30 – 1.00pm. Parking will be outside in the courtyard outside the barn. Entrance to the grounds is free and the house tour is at a reduced price of £10. Charlston is just of A27 east of Firle postcode BN8 6LL. If you have not already booked but wish to go email Geoff at firstname.lastname@example.org to see if you are not too late.
Charleston is sign-posted off the A27 Brighton to Eastbourne road, 7 miles east of Lewes, between the villages of Firle and Selmeston.
The access road to Charleston from the A27 is a narrow rural road belonging to the Firle Estate. The road is uneven and has deep ditches on either sides; please take care and use the regular passing points if you encounter oncoming traffic.
