East is East and West is West, as the county’s famous poet, Kipling, said. East Sussex has many delights, from the majestic coastline of mighty chalk and sandstone cliffs, to the fecund, womanly curves of naked downland; from the seething, life-rich flatlands of Pevensey Levels, to the sandy scrub acres of the Ashdown Forest; from the man-made delights of tiny, flint villages and elegant seaside squares, to the shyest places of the deep, wooded Weald.
