The Lanes, yes I love wandering in there, less for the shops than the architecture. I find in fact if I look up in most towns there is a lot more interest above ground floor level. Did you ever go to Chichester Ozzi? That has some really lovely old houses and roofs above the shops in most of the main shopping streets.

All these Sussex towns Marks. Soon be back amongst them and have to get used to being one of the herd again. Smile

I may be rejected by the rest of the herd if I don't smell right!

We had a whole day in Brighton meeting up with Chris Macdonald and his wife before having a delicious lunch in Nia's from where we could watch every Man and his Muse wandering the streets ......... full of Life's Rich Pattern including the tall guy with large dog: well I'm not sure whether it was a guy or a guy pretending to be, whatever Embarassed ...... the dog didn't seem to mind!  Sun was shining.  Sea was sprakling.  Have to mind on the Prom though, cyclists etc. whizz along without warning OH!!!! wandered round the Lanes before driving back via Chichester which also has amazing architecture.  Like Alchemist I tend to look upwards and have to remember not to walk as I do so Surprised

 

Do we get to visit Marks once you are settled? ;-).  

every change is scarey even if we want it

Alchemist that is a very good observation. The street-front tends to swop and change with fashion, where as the rest of the elevation remains the same for (in your case), hundreds of years. It is far easier to see where you are in time by looking up.

Chester I have been to. Chichester, not even sure where it is, sorry ...

If you can't see the light at the end of the tunnel - run down there and light the blooming thing yourself!

I worked in Brighton up until a few years ago in property management. I only dealt with commercial stuff and it is quite stunning how quickly a street can change with the comings and goings of various shops and business'.

For me it was watching the world pass by sitting in Browns down in Duke St. of a lunch time or just good old fish'n'chips on the sea front. Then it would be back to work dealing with the likes of squatters and non rent payers. Good times especially when the squatters (not the brightest bunch by and large) were up for a bit of shenanigans !! Then there was Kemptown. I tell you, some of the stuff going on behind the facades up there were truly enlightening.

Brighton, good or bad, it certainly is pretty unique :)

Ozzi, if you look at a map of Britain, along the bottom there is the Isle of Wight as a diamond shape about half way along. Go a little east of that and you find Chichester.

I think most people think of Brighton as unique SD. Funny it started that way and has continued for over 200 years in the same vein.

Hah - so I probably caught a train through there en route to the Isle of Wight then.

If you came along the coast you may well have done. You didn't see the best of the town though as the railway line is to the south of it.

OK. All loaded up, trailer hitched, tranquiliser tablets for the cat and the staffy procured and goodbyes said. Diesel and oil checked.

 

4am start to be in Dublin for 7.

So I guess this is au-revoir Ireland.

See you all next week. Have fun and play nicely.
