Smugglers Inn, Alfriston
Smugglers Inn, Alfriston
As its name suggests the house has historical connections with smuggling that was rife in the area during the 18th and early 19th centuries. Formerly known as Market Cross House (It is on the western side of Market Cross Square) the whole house is riddled with passages and doorways - 21 rooms, 47 doors and 6 staircases as well as a large cellar and small hiding place in the attic, all designed to confuse excise officers and aid escape.
