Sutton House & Tudor Hackney: Ralph Sadler's Nouveau-Riche 'Bryk Place' - The Tudor Travel Guide

A few weeks ago we were honoured to be visited by The Tudor Travel Guide who has written about her visit and research over on her blog. It’s well worth a read for everybody who would like to learn more about Sutton House’s first resident, Ralph Sadleir, who built Sutton House in then rural Hackney way back in 1535 and had a fascinating career.

Thanks again Sarah for visiting us, we can’t wait to hear your podcast about Sutton House when it’s released next year 🎧
