VISIT TO FIRLE PLACE, NEAR LEWES
Sunday 19 June 2005

Set in extensive parklands beneath the South Downs, Firle Place near Lewes has been the magnificent stately home of the Gage family for over five hundred years. The original Tudor house, remodelled in the 18th century, contains diverse collections of art treasures accumulated by the family over the years.

Our visit this year was a joint affair with members from South Eastern section and friends from the Bentley Drivers' Club. The motor cars were displayed on the lawns in front of the house where members enjoyed their picnics in the beautiful sunny weather. During the afternoon many went on a tour of the house.
