Yesterday was such a lovely day that we decided to have a go at a short walk.
Tom is feeling a lot better now but had not been out since being ill.
We were talking the other day and saying how many lovely places there are in Sussex and how we should get out there and see them.
Being ill and thinking its the end has the effect that you should really do things and not wait.
So we have decided that we shall try to visit some of these villages and places of interest when the weather is good.
Yesterday it was the village of Bramber.
The village high street has some really pretty, very old houses and here you can see the largest bit of the castle that is still standing beside the church.
The first house across from the car park had a very interesting garden.
Someone had decorated the garden with lots of home made statues.
The centre picture is showing a snake and if you look you can see the head rearing up above the bush to the right.
The church is the only building left that was connected to the castle and has just managed to get enough donations to do some repairs to keep it in circulation.
Inside it was small but beautiful.
Every pew had a row of hand made tapestry hassocks for kneeling on the cold floor.
I noticed a wooden beam across the ceiling that I am assuming could be one of the originals, it was very worn and thin and was being supported .
Here's my brave man who tackled a bit of a hill puffing and panting but getting a good work out, lol
standing against the only large bit of castle that's left.
The walls of this castle were 1 Metre thick but the roundheads apparently were the one's who finally destroyed it.
We had such a lovely day after all of the worry and strain of the last few weeks and I hope that we shall be able to do more of this and explore more of Sussex this year.
