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.

Missladypink,

I don't mean to be rude but

1 please read the forum rules about asking for locations in open chat and
2 this thread is nearly 5 years old so you are a little late to the party.

I have just been advised that this has been renovated and converted into a residential property.
Be very interesting to see what they have done with it!
