Sussex: A County History Guide

By Desmond Seward

This study of a singular English county takes the reader from ‘pagan’ Sussex to ‘Bloomsbury’ Sussex and beyond.

Although sometimes critical of the encroachment of the modern world, Desmond Seward takes us behind suburbia and motorways and explores the old, secret Sussex, still there for those who want to find it, still beautiful and still mysterious.

Seward brilliantly conveys his affection for the county — for its ghosts, legends and smugglers, for its castles and great country houses and, above all, for the fern-covered slopes of the Weald, the colours and shapes of the ‘soothing, healing’ Downs.
