The plaque to the right of the door says "OVINGDEAN GRANGE. Immortalised in the novel by W. HARRISON AINSWORTH first published 1849"

According to Wikipedia: "The Grange is the subject of legend. In 1857, the popular novelist W. Harrison Ainsworth wrote Ovingdean Grange: A Tale of the South Downs, in which he described how the future King Charles II stayed there for less than 24 hours before escaping to France in 1651, fathering a child in the process. King Charles is reported to have sheltered in the chimney breast of the master bedroom."

Harrison Ainsworth's best known work is 'The Lancashire Witches'. For more about his life see LinkExternal link
