Exploring Steyning, West Sussex

Today, I am taking a stroll through the West Sussex downland town of Steyning. Originally a Saxon settlement, it grew to become an important port town – the River Adur ran closer than it does today. The Norman’s built their castle close by at Bramber and the railways linked it to London for a hundred years until Dr Richard Beeching cut the line in the 1960s. But the architecture is stunning and that’s what I am here to have a look at.
