Bygone Steyning, Bramber and Beeding
Chichester, Sussex, Phillimore. 1988, First Edition. (ISBN: 0850336694). Hard Cover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket. 162 illustrations with map endpapers. The three villages of Steyning, Bramber and Beeding are now quiet backwaters and a large part of their present charm is that they preserve much of the atmosphere of a past age. Yet, paradoxically, the three adjacent communities were relatively much busier in the past. Bustling river trade on the Adur combined with their position as centres for a thriving agricultural community, with markets and fairs, a castle, a priory, a great collegiate church and, by the tenth century, even a mint; all of these made them places of importance in the Middle Ages. 168. Fine/Fine.
