Patcham Place is a very large 16th century house in Patcham which can be easily seen from the main road to London. It was built in 1558 and was owned for many years by Anthony Stapley one of the men who signed the death warrant for King Charles I
It was bought by Brighton Council in 1926 and in recent years it has been a youth hostel. In January 2012, the council announced they would be selling the lease to a company which would turn the building into a business and community centre. It was sold in February 2013 and a restoration programme is under way.
