‘They whipped him to within an inch of his life,’ is how the story opens in Tales of Olde Sussex by Phillip Mercer. In this fireside yarn, I recount the terrible dead that befell a small scale farmer living near Balcombe in the Ouse Valley, in West Sussex around 1730. It is the story of a Squire whose love of hunting foxes removes him from common humanity and turns him into a barbarian. I hope you enjoy the retelling.
