Firle Whole Estate Plan
Firle, East Sussex
The Gage family have owned 7,500 acres of Sussex Downland, five villages, 114 houses, seven farms, eighteen yards, two pubs, and many businesses for over 500 years. Since forming in 2011 the South Downs National Park have asked landowners to explain the value of their holdings. Lord Gage tasked us with bringing together his records and articulating Firle's relevance, vision, and commitments.
Our response is an estate plan that explains local habitats, infrastructure, archaeology, farming, business, and villages using two years of our own research.
