Art from the Ages, White Horse and A Glimpse of River

Art from the Ages :- Within the small village of Clayton in Sussex there stands a small Church. You can easily pass by withought paying it much attention because from the outside it's a rather insignificant looking building. But it hides a treasure. The Anglo-Saxon Church was founded in the 11th Century and upon its walls are an extensive set of wall paintings that date from the early 12th century. St John the Baptist's Church is now a Grade I listed building because of its architectural and historical importance.

White Horse :- Shot from the lower promenade by the beach this is an image of The White Horse Hotel and Inn in the village of Rottingdean on the South Coast of England. The building was constructed in the 1930's on the cliffs of the village and commands spectacular views out over the sea. I was surprised to hear / read that The White Horse is the only seafront hotel for a 50 mile stretch. Brighton's seafront has many 'seafront' hotels with sea views as do many other towns on the coast but as far as I know this is the only one on this side of the road ... right on the front.

A Glimpse of River :- The wonderful winding River Cuckmere and the famous Cuckmere Estuary as seen from fields on the Eastern side. Sheep dotted about the grass, a gentle breeze blew in from the sea and the sun beamed down upon all as the clouds scudded overhead. On the far right of the image you can just make out some houses on the 'edge' of Seaford by the treeline. Done below you can also see many cars in the car park of The Cuckmere Inn (formerly known as The Golden Galleon) by the Exceat Bridge.
