Further Information:
Built in 1569 from local flint and Normandy stone by William Morley, Glynde Place was constructed on the site of an earlier house and is set in formal gardens. One of William's descendants, Habart Morley, was a judge at the trial of Charles I; Habart was later able to obtain a pardon at the Restoration, as he had previously refused to sign Charles's death warrant.

Bishop Richard Trevor remodelled the interior in 1743 when he inherited the estate; the only change made to the outside was the addition of a new entrance on the east side. The stables, which are passed when entering the building, were built in 1760 and the Palladian style parish church that sits beside the gateway dates from 1763.

Inside, a collection of paintings, family portraits, furniture, embroidery, bronzes, historical documents and silver is on display, plus a room dedicated to Mr Speaker Brand.
