PICTURESQUE AND HISTORIC LANDMARKS OF DOWNLAND

PICTURESQUE AND HISTORIC LANDMARKS OF DOWNLAND

From this south side of Cuckfield churchyard there is a wonderful view towards the Downs, and Cuckfield's shingled spire on its twelfth century tower is a landmark for miles. Going south from here the road presently runs very near the railway to Brighton, and passes Patcham, whose mill (top left) stands on the edge of a southward spur of the Downs. Farther south still, and on the very edge of Brighton's suburb, Preston, we come to Blatchington (bottom), from which we look right over the great town to the Channel, fresh and wide beyond the houses.
