Introducing the oldest building in Eastbourne

Dating back to the 11th Century Langney Priory opened its doors today for its Spring Fayre.  Hundreds of people attended and enjoyed the spinning, hand to hand fighting , drumming, dancing, music, tea and cakes, barbecue and craft stalls.

The tiny consecrated Chapel (pictured above) seats just 30 people and is open for services and weddings.  As the oldest part of the building this peaceful stone chapel has a wonderful ambience.

Langney Priory is raising money to develop the building and grounds to become a training hotel specialising in working with people with learning difficulties.  It is expected to be developed into a boutique luxury hotel with yurts and glamping in the grounds.  As well as the delightful chapel the Priory has a long room available for banquets which also dates back to the 11th Century.

The Shed at the Priory is run by Age Concern and teaches carpentry to retired and young people.
