"Where there's an opera house there are bound to be tea rooms" I said. So we turned off towards Glyndebourne and I was right. Well, sort of: there's nothing at Glyndebourne itself but there's a lovely tea room- with home-made cakes and scones- at Glynde- a mile and bit down the road.

Glynde is set in the heart of the South Downs. This is the descent towards the village...

Next door to the church is Glynde Place- a Jacobean House that is open to the public occasionally, but not in early March. Here's the gatehouse. I don't think I'm imagining that the bell tower is a little skew-whiff.
