Preston Manor
Preston Manor
Preston Manor is the former manor house of the ancient Sussex village of Preston, now part of the city of Brighton and Hove. The present building dates mostly from 1738, when Lord of the manor Thomas Western rebuilt the original 13th-century structure (part of which remains inside), and 1905 when Charles Stanley Peach's renovation and enlargement gave the house its current appearance LinkExternal link

The building is now owned by the council and used as a museum LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
Preston Park

Preston Park is situated north of the centre of Brighton, It is one of Brighton's largest parks, with 63 acres (250,000 m2) of lawns, formal borders and rose gardens, bowling greens, tennis courts and a small pond. The park was formally declared open on 8 November 1884.
The park remains green throughout the summer because of a non-drinkable underground water source, known as the Wellesbourne, which runs below Preston Park, London Road and The Level
