A History of the County of Sussex V.ii

Littlehampton and district: Arundel Rape (south-eastern part)

Edited by C. P. Lewis

The Littlehampton volume focuses on 12 parishes with particular emphasis on seaside development from the 18th century onwards.
Covers the parishes of Angmering, Burpham, Ferring, Goring, Kingston, Littlehampton, Lyminster, Poling, East Preston, Rustington, North Stoke and Warningcamp, assessing their history from the earliest times to the present day. There is a particular emphasis on seaside coastal development from the eighteenth century onwards.


The volume is lavishly illustrated with both maps and photographs [and] handsomely produced as ever, strong on matters with which local historians often need assistance, clear in its framework and amply supplied with footnotes to a wide variety of sources. It will provide an excellent reference book and a stepping point for more elaborate and discursive accounts of the history of these parishes. SOUTHERN HISTORY

Overall, both these volumes form invaluable additions to the history of their respective counties. They are authoritative and thoroughly researched, providing- as they are meant to do- the key works of reference for local history. ECONOMIC HISTORY REVIEW [Jon Stobart] (joint review with VCH York: East Riding VIII)

Another excellent VCH volume. THE LOCAL HISTORIAN

Definitive work is an amazing piece of research. LITTLEHAMPTON GAZETTE
