by Josephine Duggan Rees
The illustrated history of a West Sussex village and its inhabitants down the centuries.

Illustrated with many historic photographs and full of interesting information, this book is a useful resource to historians, researchers and students, but can also be enjoyed by anyone with more than a passing interest in history of England in general and Sussex in particular.

Nestling on the southern slopes of the South Downs, overlooking the coastal plain and the English Channel, is the Sussex village of Slindon, one of the prettiest of all the Downland villages. It has a history as long and as colourful as any rural settlement in England, dating back to neolithic times and is home to a thriving community to this day.

Recounting lively stories of Slindon’s former inhabitants over the centuries and of its many interesting and historic connections, this book contains a wealth of information, and records for posterity the amazing richness and variety of village life in Slindon over many centuries.

It will be of great interest to Slindon’s present-day inhabitants and former residents, as well as the many visitors to the village over the years.

Those interested in the social history of Sussex or researching their ancestral roots will find the names and occupations of many former villagers recorded, along with the histories of many of Slindon’s houses and public buildings. There is also a useful and comprehensive index.

The text is accompanied by a large number of historic photographs.
