SECOND EDITION of ‘SEVEN SISTERS – THE HISTORY BEHIND the VIEW’ NOW AVAILABLE.
The text for this Second Edition has been considerably extended where new research has disclosed further information. Purchase via this website or, at the Seven Sisters Country Park Centre, Exceat or Much Ado Bookshop, Alfriston.
This research encompasses additional accounts of shipwrecks, including newly-commissioned scientific research for this book, on one of the two great Sussex shipwrecks, that of the exceptionally valuable Spanish ship, Nympha Americana. Also to be found, are newly discovered details of both sea and river defences and also the early recreational use of the Cuckmere River.
Research has enabled an entirely new chapter, which sets out events leading to the creation and, early management of the Seven Sisters Country Park at Exceat including its use by the film industry.
Excepting this new chapter and Chapters One and Two, the ‘cut-off point’ for the book’s content is still approximately the early-1970’s. A number of additional illustrations have also been included, as is a completely new, comprehensive index.
