Over half of Sussex is protected countryside. The South Downs in particular are subject to protective planning rules and there have been calls to create a South Downs National Park. The oldest university in Sussex is the research intensive University of Sussex, founded in 1961 at Falmer in Brighton, the first new university in England since World War II. The university consistently ranks among the top 20 universities in the UK. It is home to the renowned Institute of Development Studies and the Science Policy Research Unit, alongside over 40 other established research centres. There is nothing about the River Ouse to make it the best or most beautiful waterway in the country. It doesn’t have the Turner painting bend of the Thames, the spectacle of the Severn Bore or the steep valleys of the Wye. But it is charming all the same, and quite perfectly embodies the somnolent, quiet appeal of East Sussex. This expression is the county motto of Sussex. It is a Sussex dialect phrase meaning “we will not be driven”. The motto asserts that the people of Sussex, Sussaxons, have minds of their own, and cannot be forced against their will or told what to do.

With this diversity of language and determination of spirit in mind, I caught up with Peter Benner last week to tap into his memories of the Sussex dialect: It’s not what you say, it’s the way that you say it!All capable aircraft are welcome to join us for breakfast and a chinwag, served within one of our hangars. (unfortunately we cannot accept Flex wings*) At the beginning of the 19th century agricultural labourers' conditions took a turn for the worse with an increasing amount of them becoming unemployed, those in work faced their wages being forced down. Conditions became so bad that it was even reported to the House of Lords in 1830 that four harvest labourers (seasonal workers) had been found dead of starvation. The deteriorating conditions of work for the agricultural labourer eventually triggered riots, first in neighbouring Kent, and then in Sussex, where they lasted for several weeks, although the unrest continued until 1832 and became known as the Swing Riots. Please find the spirit of Bonfire in some words from a poem published by W Victor Cook in 1914 may give you an insight into the ‘Spirit of Sussex Bonfire’ It’s possible to do Lewes Bonfire Night as a day trip from London or Brighton, but public transport restrictions can make logistics a headache, and you’ll miss the bonfire society gatherings at the end of the night, which start and finish late.
