What the Victorians did for Sussex | Roland Lewis
Every building tells a story and this lively book provides a fascinating guide to the story the Victorians told in Sussex. Become a time traveller and take a county-wide tour of the surviving buildings that are the architectural legacy of those ever-industrious Victorians, be they prosaic, practical or downright pompous! What the Victorians Did for Sussex explores not just the bricks and mortar of 19th-century schools, town halls, libraries, railway stations, almshouses, churches, hospitals and workhouses scattered across the region, but also the social history and human drama that prompted their creation. Told in a highly informative yet accessible way, this is a wonderful story that will open the reader’s eyes to the glory of the architectural heritage still to be found in our cities, towns and villages.
