Description:

Stanmer is a small village on the eastern outskirts of Brighton, in East Sussex, England.HistoryStanmer village pond is surrounded by sarsen stones, which accounts for the place-name, Old English for "stone pond". The stones are not in their original situation, but have been gathered on the Downs and landscaped into the park's appearance. There have been rather inconclusive archaeological excavations at Pudding Bag Wood and Rocky Clump in the north of the park, and in Stanmer Great Wood, producing evidence of occupation from Neolithic times onwards.The village is first recorded in about 765 A.D. when (if the document is authentic) land there was granted by king Ealdwulf of Sussex to Hunlaf in order that he might found a college of secular canons at South Malling near Lewes. In the Middle Ages it had the curious distinction of forming a detached part of the Rape of Pevensey, which is otherwise east of the Ouse.
