Medieval (Lewes to Saltdean & Brighton) A window in the ancient church at Southease (England). This window dates from the 15 century. The wood carving is modern. The tower dates from the 12th century and houses two bells, one of which is dates c1280 and is the oldest in the county. Before the Reformation, the walls were covered with colourful paintings depicting biblical stories for those who couldn't read the text of the time. Henry VIII had them whitewashed! "In 966 King Edgar granted the church to Hyde Abbey in Winchester. The original charter is in the British Museum and a copy is on display near the door; Southease must have been quite a flourishing church and village with a thriving herring fishing industry, recorded in the Doomsday book as being one of the largest in the area.

Mount Caburn East Sussex. Just short walk from Lewes. Stunning views from its top on parts of South Downs and river Ouse valley. So it is totally unsurprising, that it was used as a location for Iron Age hill fort.
