This volume covers some of the finest landscape and architecture in southern England, much of it set within the South Downs National Park. The county’s small towns and villages feature a pleasing mix of stone, timber, and brick houses of every period. Among numerous atmospheric country houses are the Tudor ruins of Cowdray, the Elizabethan mansion at Parham, and the French-inspired Petworth in its great park, famously captured in Turner’s paintings. On the grandest scale is the mighty Arundel Castle, seat of the Duke of Norfolk, while Chichester, the only city in West Sussex, boasts one of the country’s most important 12th-century cathedrals. Among many major ecclesiastical and educational establishments built in the 19th century, none is more impressive than Lancing College set high above the coast. New research accompanies 130 specially commissioned color photographs in this authoritative and expert guide.
 “One of the many improvements of this new edition is to acknowledge that these ancient buildings have a history far more complicated than was once imagined” —Simon Heffer, The Daily Telegraph

“The ‘Pevsner’ series [. . .] is said to be the unrivalled source for authoritative and comprehensive information on the architecture of the British Isles. In Sussex:West, new research accompanies 130 specially commissioned colour photographs” —Mid Sussex Times

“[The book] follows a now-familiar format, with longer and updated texts, numerous additional figures and an expanded collection of colour photographs” —John Goodall, Country Life
