GLYNDE consists of the big house, Glynde Place, The Trevor Arms pub, a post office and village store, an 18th-century church and a grassy bank that becomes a cloud of daffodils in spring. It has a village hall, football and cricket clubs. Mount Caburn, one of the highest points along the South Downs, looms above. Glyndbourne opera house, which draws the dinner jackets with their picnic hampers between May and August, is on the parish boundary with Ringmer. Much of the local property is in private ownership and leased to villagers.
