New version of Pevsner hits the shelves.

Any readers of the ‘Chichester Observer’ for May 30th will have seen an article about the updated Pevsner guide to Sussex (now divided into two volumes, East and West). The West Sussex volume is now on sale and is a wonderful resource for all those interested in the area. Furthermore it is of particular interest to CLHS members as Alan Green, Programme Secretary, official sound level checker at all meetings and author of several works on Chichester, was asked to contribute towards the volume and, of course, did so.
A discount code to allow the purchase of this volume will be appearing shortly on this blog, thanks to our Chairman.
