Michelham Priory
Michelham Priory is the site of a former Augustine Priory near Upper Dicker, East Sussex, It is owned and administered by the Sussex Archaeological Society.

The Augustine Priory of the Holy Trinity was founded at Michelham in 1229. The Priory was dissolved in the 1537 by King Henry VIII. The Church and some of the building were demolished and between 1599 and 1601 the house was sold to Thomas Sackville,

The property remained in private hands into the 20th century, when it was restored by the Sussex architect and antiquarian, Walter Godfrey. It was used as a base for Canadian troops during the winter of 1941-42 while they prepared for the Dieppe Raid. Later it was the East Sussex headquarters of the Auxiliary Territorial Service.
