Highways and Byways in Sussex

Highways and Byways in Sussex by Edward V. Lucas
By: (1868-1938)

Highways and Byways in Sussex is a delightful and charming travelogue that takes readers on a journey through the picturesque and historic county of Sussex. Edward V. Lucas has a keen eye for detail and a talent for bringing the landscape and culture of Sussex to life on the page.

As the author travels through the various towns and villages of Sussex, he provides readers with interesting anecdotes, historical tidbits, and colorful descriptions of the people and places he encounters along the way. Lucas's writing is engaging and evocative, making it easy for readers to imagine themselves right alongside him as he traverses the county.

One of the highlights of the book is Lucas's ability to capture the essence of Sussex's natural beauty, from its rolling hills and lush green countryside to its picturesque coastal villages and sandy beaches. His descriptions of landmarks such as the South Downs, Beachy Head, and the historic town of Rye are particularly vivid and evocative.

Overall, Highways and Byways in Sussex is a fascinating and enjoyable read for anyone interested in travel writing, English countryside, or just looking to get lost in a good book. Lucas's love for Sussex shines through on every page, making this book a true delight to read.

Book Description:
A very personal and opinionated wander through the Sussex of around 1900, illustrated with anecdotes, literary and poetic quotations, gravestone epitaphs and a gentle sense of humour. The author colours the countryside with his nostalgia for times past and regret for the encroaching future, his resentment of churches with locked doors, and his love of deer parks, ruined castles and the silent hills.

(I must add my apologies for my attempts at the Sussex dialect in the chapter on that subject.)
