Newmarket Hill - A Sussex Downland History


This book is at a very early stage of development. It started as a history of a remote farm labourer's cottage on the South Downs between Lewes and Brighton. However it was soon discovered that the subject could easily be extended to enable an insight into the wider history of the Sussex Downs as a whole, and so be suitable for publication as a Wikibook.
