I am following in the footsteps of Arthur Stanley Cooke, author of Off The Beaten Track, a book about Sussex published a hundred years ago. In this episode I am approaching the rural village of Poynings from Devil’s Dyke. I seek out the source of its water, look for the old water mill and mill pond, have a stroll around the church and gaze lovingly at the old houses in the village.
