Waughs Solicitors Building

Our History

For over 400 years the imposing buildings comprising Judges Terrace, which adjoin the picturesque High Street of East Grinstead, have been considered some of the most prestigious in the Town, with history showing their connection in early days with the law.

Clarendon House, built in about 1485 was used until the early 19th century by Judges holding Winter Assizes in Sussex.

The building became the lodging house for the Judges including, according to local legend, the notorious Judge Jeffries.

Judicial punishments were frequently administered outside the doors of the building, from whipping and hangings, to the burning at the stake of the East Grinstead Martyrs during the reign of Queen Mary.
