Alfriston Lock-up
Alfriston Lock-up
This curious building is to be found in the Dene car park between West Street and North Street. It is constructed of flint with brickwork reveals to its door and two windows (the second, smaller, window being in the top half of the side facing away from us). The flat top is roofed with slates . No records exist of its construction or original purpose although various roles have been conjectured including a dovecot, gun store, shot tower, kiln and lock-up (holding cell). The latter being the most likely according to the Oddities of Sussex website LinkExternal link.
