Inhaltsangabe: The Sussex coast stretches westwards from the Kent boundary near Camber Sands to Thorney Island within Chichester Harbour and its watery borders with Hampshire. The county throughout its long history has always looked outwards to and depended upon the sea and to this day Sussex is still possibly best known for its string of coastal resorts that in many ways have become part of our language and national institutions.
Despite the popular perception that this shoreline has become engulfed by development, the Sussex coast in fact contains some of the finest seascapes in Southern England. Notable features are the magnificent white chalk cliffs of Beachy Head and the Seven Sisters - symbolic of England throughout much of the world, the glorious often deserted sandy beaches of Camber and theWitterings, the lonely haunting hinterland of Pagham and Chichester Harbours and the vegetative shingle of Shoreham and Pett. It was on these shores that the Romans landed to be followed by the Saxons, theViking raiders and the Norman invasion of 1066; only since the eighteenth century has the coastline's reputation as a fashionable resort for tourism and leisure been developed.
Featuring over 150 superlative photographs and a text reflecting the extraordinary variety and interest to be found along this fascinating coastline, the book captures the colour,mood and spirit of one of the most popular seaside destinations in Britain - Sussex by the Sea.
