Michelham Priory

Michelham priory is located in Upper Dicker just off the A22. If you are traveling east out of Brighton on the A27 to Michelham look out for the Wilmington Long Man, a giant figure cut in the chalk of the south downs. The figure is sometimes visible from the road depending on the amount of growth in the hedgerows.
