The East Sussex volume of The Buildings of England covers an area ranging from the High Weald in the north of the county to the massive ridge of the South Downs and the resort towns and ancient ports of the coast. Its coastal resorts are particularly distinguished, none more so than Brighton and Hove, where John Nash's oriental Pavilion for the Prince Regent sets the tone. Elsewhere castles at Camber, Bodiam and fortified town walls at Rye and Winchelsea attest to its military past and Battle Abbey to its medieval endowments. The towns and villages are especially rich in timber-framed, brick and tile houses for which the county is famous. The twentieth century makes its mark in the exhilarating De La Warr Pavilion at Bexhill, and the uncompromising forms of the 1960s University of Sussex campus.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Sussex is seen as a deeply rural county of picturesque villages and endearingly squat Norman churches. In this latest Pevsner volume on East Sussex, skilfully revised by Nicholas Antram, it is the town and cities which emerge as the stars."-Marcus Binney, The Times

-- Marcus Binney * The Times *
"The revised Pevsner Architectural Guide to East Sussex was truly a labour of love for Nicholas Antram. Suffering from a mortal illness, he was determined to finish his task of updating Pevsner's 1964 original; he died soon after its completion. It has all the rigour of this admirable series, and a humanity and sensitivity of its own."-Charlotte Moore, The Spectator -- Charlotte Moore * The Spectator *
