What the Victorians Did for Sussex
Every building tells a story - and this book provides a guide to the stories the Victorians told in Sussex. Sussex has a wide-ranging and renowned collection of Victorian buildings, from grand town halls and outstanding churches, to distinctive railway stations and unassuming parish halls; from eminent colleges and splendid country mansions, to modest village schools and humble estate cottages; from workhouses and hospitals, to almshouses and cemeteries - this guide covers them all and more. "What The Victorians Did For Sussex" pinpoints the buildings that make up the county's Victorian architectural legacy, providing both a description and location. But it also looks at the wider social context of the period, providing the reader with an insight into the creation of individual buildings, and reasons why they continue to deserve our interest. Buildings provide a tangible and lasting expression of the values, ideals, and aspirations of any society; no understanding of the Victorian period can he possible without a study of its architectural legacy.
