    Default The Shrine - West Sussex - October 2016


    Buried in the countryside of West Sussex is this rather magical place. A totally chilled out explore with some quite interesting and quirky bits of architecture.

    Location & History

    The mausoleum is said to have been built for the mother of the family to be buried in. The actually body however is not buried here, but in a local cemetery. The shrine is around the remains of an old castle, the remains of which are still visible.

    The site is situated on the edge of a lovely pond and has a path going around it with a boat house on the opposite side.


    The Explore

    This was a very relaxed explore, the grounds are pretty magical and are very pretty. There isn't a great deal to see other than the mausoleum and the statues, however a nice little wander neither the less.

    The mausoleum is completed sealed up and is alarmed, so exterior shots only.
