Sussex in Photographs by Philip Bedford
Sussex is a mostly rural county, with rolling hills in the South Downs National Park, comprising ancient farmland of patchwork fields with sheep grazing the hillside. It includes the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and ancient villages, churches and castles. It also has a long stretch of rural and urban coastline, and a thriving community of seafront towns with a history in the fishing and maritime industry. Sussex in Photographs features local landmarks of both natural and man-made origin. The Sussex countryside is peaceful, and its views over the glacial valleys of the South Downs National Park are breathtaking. This book will take you through its ancient Saxon villages right through to the modern city streets of Brighton and Hove. These photographs capture Sussex in all seasons and all weathers, showing a county vibrant in colour and beautiful tranquillity.
