Hammonds Place, Burgess Hill
Hammonds Place, Burgess Hill
Hammonds Place was built in the 16th century. The original building was damaged by fire and it was subsequently rebuilt & added to. It was never a working farm though. Hammonds Farm was originally owned by Little Hammonds Farm House, which is situated opposite Hammonds Place tucked in just behind the barn you can see on the right. Little Hammonds Farm House (now known as Little Hammonds) dates back to the 1590's (extended in the early 1900's). The working farm was sold to developers Wates in the mid 1960's and subsequently developed in the late 1980's / early 1990's (Hammonds Ridge housing estate, Tesco, etc). In between outbuildings were used by Hammonds Place amongst others. Stabling and a large milking yard originally adjoined the house on the North Westerly corner. The barn in the picture was originally also part of the farm, it was developed into a residential dwelling in the late 1990's.
