The Centre was set up by Maria and Dominic Whitehouse with their family. They are realising a long-held dream of promoting wider awareness and enjoyment of the spiritual, cultural and natural history of the South Downs and Sussex coastal area in a peaceful and welcoming environment.
Maria has a background in geology, further education and legal practise as a solicitor. She has considerable experience arranging pilgrimage holidays. A recently retired Navy doctor, Dominic now works locally as a consultant physician. They have a deep love of Sussex - both its countryside and its Christian heritage and culture - and are keen to share it with their guests.
With special thanks to Hugh Hayward for most of the website photographs and Canon Tim Madeley for the photographs of Arundel from the cathedral spire.
