The Hayton Baker Village Hall

Hayton Baker Hall in Ripe

Originally the village school built around 1842 this lovely traditional sussex flint building later became the village hall for Ripe and Chalvington. It is dedicated to George Hayton Baker who was a friend and benefactor to Ripe and the chairman of the parish council for 27 years. Over time it has been extended and considerably improved and is now a much used community asset. Meetings, classes, exhibitions and clubs all enjoy the space available to hire and its also the home of Ripe Nursery School
