The East Sussex volume of The Buildings of England covers an area
ranging from the High Weald in the north of the county to the
massive ridge of the South Downs and the resort towns and ancient
ports of the coast. Its coastal resorts are particularly
distinguished, none more so than Brighton and Hove, where John
Nash's oriental Pavilion for the Prince Regent sets the tone.
Elsewhere castles at Camber, Bodiam and fortified town walls at Rye
and Winchelsea attest to its military past and Battle Abbey to its
medieval endowments. The towns and villages are especially rich in
timber-framed, brick and tile houses for which the county is
famous. The twentieth century makes its mark in the exhilarating De
La Warr Pavilion at Bexhill, and the uncompromising forms of the
1960s University of Sussex campus.
