A stunning collection of images showcasing the scenic splendour, intrinsic character and contrasting treasures of Sussex through the seasons.
Sussex is a mostly rural county, with rolling hills in the South Downs National Park, comprising ancient farmland of patchwork fields with sheep grazing the hillside. It includes the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and ancient villages, churches and castles. It also has a long stretch of rural and urban coastline, and a thriving community of seafront towns with a history in the fishing and maritime industry. Sussex in Photographs features local landmarks of both natural and man-made origin. The Sussex countryside is peaceful, and its views over the glacial valleys of the South Downs National Park are breathtaking. This book will take you through its ancient Saxon villages right through to the modern city streets of Brighton and Hove. These photographs capture Sussex in all seasons and all weathers, showing a county vibrant in colour and beautiful tranquillity.

“Philip Bedford, a professional landscape and wedding photographer and photography tutor, has produced just such a collection of photographs, which absorb the senses and delight the eye, and take us on an armchair tour of the county’s coast and countryside, towns and villages.
Here are atmospheric landscapes at all seasons of the year, peaceful old settlements, silent seascapes, and venerable buildings. Turn page after page, and linger awhile with each, to feast on this most photogenic of regions.”
Freddie Lawrence, Sussex Life Magazine, June 2020
“Thank you very much for the book. I took it to my father today for his 96th Birthday and he was thrilled with it. Beautiful photos and so many places he recognised with so many memories attached. My husband and I thought it was a really lovely book and one to dip into and treasure.” – Alison, Bexhill-on-Sea
“Thank you so much for that incredible book… I have shed a few tears looking at the photos as they brought back memories of happier times. Paul and I recognised about 80% of the photos. If times were normal I would sit down with you and could relate a story about so many of the photos and how we were involved with family in those places.” – Jackie, Surrey
