Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Old Mint House dates back to 1342 and is a substantial and attractive building. The current building is situated where a building for minting coins can be traced as far back as 1076 AD, some of the coins from this site are now on display in the British Museum.

The property which currently comprises approximately 879 m2 retains a vast amount of
character and features some of which in the case of the oak panelling are believed to date back to 1460 AD. There is a long and interestign past to The Old Mint House including the visit of Kings and we have a Souviner book detailing it for those who are interested.

It is thought, subject to the necessary consents, that the site could be moved forward on an enabling basis to ensure the restoration and preservation of The Old Mint House.

The owner and their consultants have had numerous discussions and various correspondences with Wealden District Council
regarding the development and restoration of The Old Mint House. These have all been documented and are available upon request.
