    I thought it was Admiral Warender and his wife. In the 1980s it was part of the Thomas Peacock school – did you board?

    Built in 1798, privately owned, Lord & Lady Warender owned the house from 1906 to 1955 .East Sussex County Council bought it. Then opened for an agricultural boarding school 1956-1972.
