A Sussex Miscellany | Sophie Collins | A Sussex Guide
Hardback with dust-cover
Who was the Grey Lady of Pevensey Castle? Where could you have dined on Pigeons au soleil. What (or who) on earth is the Knucker? How do you make a Sussex trug? Who or what were the Hastings Rarities? What’s the pond in Sussex Pond Pudding? How many firework societies are there in Lewes? What was the name of the Bloomsbury marmoset? What was the Guinea Pig Club? How many men did it take to run the Shoreham Oyster Fleet? Who won the Battle of Lewes? For answers to these burning questions, or for a lovely lazy afternoon dipping into an entertainingly quirky mix of local facts, figures, history, statistics and folk tales, turn to A Sussex Miscellany, a refreshing Schott of Sussex for readers who love local trivia.
