The Old Rectory in 2007



CONVERTED STABLES - Part of the Lime Park estate that once belonged to the Baron von Roemer, and his son, Charles de Roemer, this nice stable square has been converted to residential accommodation, the subject of a dispute under the Party Wall Act 1996, that was revealed in June of 2022, when the owner(s) of this property failed to serve notice as to intended works.





It appears that 'The Rectory' is so named because the Bishop of Chichester once owned the building, and a representative of the Church occupied the converted stables for a number of years.


Since then Peter and June Townley purchased the property, shortly after moving in, beginning, or becoming party to, a malicious campaign to prevent historical recognition of the adjacent electricity generating complex, based on denial.


Together with Henry Arnell, they formed Lime Park Estate Limited, with the intention of taking control of the shared drive, to give them the power to litigate. Wickens Estates duly obliged, in the process of the sale and transfer, failing to ensure that the rights of all occupiers in the park were represented. To distance themselves, they immediately changed name.


You may be thinking these actions are anything but Godly. But the revelations that follow may lead you to think the players were in league with Lucifer, as to the lengths they would go to, to thwart restoration of a unique historical asset are revealed. Even to acquire it at an undervalue, aiming to bankrupt the occupier to ensure he suffered loss from which it would be difficult to recover a credit rating, etc. This is a favourite ploy of many councils, using local land charges as leverage. The trick here is to obtain a costs Order, so that you can taunt and finally bankrupt the intended victim. Held to be unlawful in the New Forrest case, by way of a violation of Article 8 of the Human Rights Act 1998.


This involved the Parish Council sitting on their hands, while Wealden District Council was engaged as a battering ram to grind the occupier down, in doing so abusing their powers as a local authority. One may class this as a Joint Enterprise. Each party being as guilty as the other. For failing to act to prevent harm to another, is as bad as causing the harm yourself.


With the passing of Peter Townley, his daughter Alison Deshayes came into the frame, ... After probate, she sold the property, netting a cool £million pounds plus as inheritance.


Enter Jill Finn and Nigel Flood, the new owners, apparently, both with experience in buildings and property, and according to the players themselves, law, to some degree ... Or at least, legal experience in the family.
