Lavington Park History

New ‘Heritage Boards’ have been erected in four locations on the college campus that reveal some of the intriguing stories about the history of Lavington Park and the school.

The boards, located next to the Walled Garden, Pheasant House, the Wilberforce Graves, and the Chicken Walk, carry text written by Su Sayer. They tell stories of key people and how certain locations came to be named. For example, during World War II, the General of the Commandos was stationed in Mansion, where much of the planning for D-Day took place. The Pheasant House, a hexagonal building now housing HR, was used to temporarily imprison a spy who was threatening to reveal the secret plans.

Headmaster John Green said: “I am very keen to make sure that the history of Seaford College and Lavington Park is maintained for all future generations. We are continuing to consider some other heritage boards throughout the campus, and I am hugely grateful to Su Sayer for all her continued support and hard work on this incredibly important project.”
