When our new clerk took over last year, he found within the papers that he inherited from the previous clerk  many years’ worth of past minute books of the parish council.

These have now been transferred to the East Sussex County Records office at The Keep, who now have a complete set of Brightling minute books since 1897 – a mine for future historians.
