A cornucopia of the peculiar and marvellous elements of Sussex's history. Wendy Hughes takes the reader on a grand tour of the curious and bizarre, including the Alfriston Star, the hostelry for medieval package tours with its unusual ship's figurehead; the infamous Blue Gardenia Murder; and Brighton's Pavilion, built as a seaside retreat for George, Prince of Wales. Read about the antics of 'Spooky Bill', a poltergeist at a house in Crawley, and learn the story of how Selsey became the home of the mousetrap. Along the way you'll meet scandalous residents, inventors, and smugglers. The A-Z of Curious Sussex is guaranteed to enthrall both resident and visitor alike.
