Brightling Park

This charming estate, set in the heart of the mouth-watering East Sussex landscape, is steeped in its own fascinating history.

The members of the Fuller family were local landowners at Brightling, East Sussex from the late 16th Century onwards and the family fortune was built upon iron and the manufacture of ironware, especially cannons and similar equipment, for the British Royal Navy.

Jack Fuller became famous for the amazing follies he built on his estate (including a stone pyramid in the grave yard of Brightling church!). These follies still stand today and help to make Brightling Park not only a superb location for your wedding but also a fascinating day out.
