Rustington – Friday 27th December 2019

Rustington is a small town in West Sussex situated on the coast.  It has a population of around 14,000 people and, according to Wikipedia, contains a conservation area with the largest number of pre-1850 listed buildings and 18th century flint cottages in the county.  Famous residents of the town include the artist Graham Sutherland, famous for the tapestry Christ in Glory in the Tetramorph in Coventry Cathedral and a portrait of Sir Winston Churchill (which Churchill hated!), and Sir Hubert Parry, who wrote the tune to the hymn Jerusalem – named Rustington after the town. The Waterstones is located in a modern building in the main shopping area. Unfortunately we didn’t have time to explore the town as we had to be in Worthing for lunch.
