HISTORY

Upper Wilting Farm is situated on the slopes of the Combe Haven River Valley overlooking the sea at St. Leonards. Recorded in the Doomsday book, Upper Wilting Farm stands on the site of a Saxon Manor. The land which has been farmed for the last 2,500 years includes ancient woodland. The current farm house was built in 1720 and the remains of an earlier 17 th century timber-framed barn is situated behind the house. There is also a large glass house which has recently been restored and is now being used by Crowhurst Community Agriculture to grow and produce vegetables for community members and some are sold in the farm shop.
