Anthony Morris was an architect in Heathfield, East Sussex. He designed many buildings in the area and around East Sussex, having started working in Heathfield in 1972 until retirement and a move to his birthplace of Richmond Upon Thames in 2017.

Supported by his wife Barbara he originally had an office above Heathfield High Street before relocating to a home office in the early 1980’s at North Lodge, Heathfield Park.

Some of his notable achievements and additions to Heathfield’s architecture include the Doctor’s Surgery and the rebuilding of Errey’s (now Trading For You) in Heathfield High Street. He designed many houses around the East Sussex area and was instrumental in saving the row of old houses in Tower Street (originally known as Donkey Row) from demolition and designed their redevelopment.

His list of works, buildings and architectural achievements are too numerable to mention but suffice to say his designs made a difference to many peoples lives in Heathfield, surrounding areas and much further afield.

When not working he enjoyed Golf and was a skilled watercolorist, often painting North Lodge, Heathfield Park, his and Barbara’s home for 40 years.

He is survived by his three children, seven grandchildren and five great grandchildren.
