Postcard from West Sussex.

I love the idea of the Nana Cathy Tour bus as described by Kathy, in the comments on the Weald and Downland post. So please hop on board we have three destinations today.

The windmill at Shipley, and if it has a certain familiarity you could be right, remember Jonathan Creek. Here’s his windmill. Goodness knows how they managed to film it for the series.

Next stop is the village of Southwater, the church of the Holy Innocents

I particularly wanted to see the new stained glass windows depicting

Christ’s Hospital and

Traditional craftsmen. This window was paid for by the Piper family who were wheelwright’s and blacksmiths.

Final stop today is down on the coast at Bognor Regis .

Looking rather down at mouth since it was visited by George V and gained the Regis , which indicates royal approval. We had a rather blowy walk on the sea front.

All that remains of the pier.

The hotel doesn’t look open for business, but someone is living there, see the washing over the name. All I can say is how very sad this is, and what a far cry from an illustration I found in a book about Bognor in our holiday cottage.

There is one more destination on the Tour Bus, but that is for another day. Hope you enjoyed the trip.

Have a great Sunday.
