Love history & architecture? Discover this quaint Saxon church!

St Botolph's Church has been referred to by a historian as one of the 'lost downland churches". It is in a peaceful spot next to the River Adur.

Admire the clean lines and perfect setting of the small, attractive church! The nave and chancel are Saxon. At the west end of the south wall is an original round-headed Saxon window.

The Saxons took advantage of the power vacuum in Sussex left behind by the Romans when they could no longer afford to maintain outlying parts of their empire in the fifth century. When the people of Sussex asked Rome for help in defending themselves from Saxon raiders, the Empire decided it couldn’t afford to strike back and left Britain to fight for its own future.

The name Sussex comes from an adaptation of the name South Saxons.

The church also has fragments of medieval wall painting ...

Afternoon tea anyone? Head to Steyning near Brighton

The tiny town of Steyning has 6 cafes offering afternoon tea. All in its picturesque High Street. They are within a 5 minute walk from Rosebud holiday cottage!

Afternoon tea is actually a relatively new tradition. Whilst the custom of drinking tea dates back to the third century BC in China and was popularised in England during the 1660s by King Charles II and his wife, it was not until the mid 19th century that the concept of afternoon tea first appeared.

It was introduced in England by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, in the year 1840. She would become hungry around 4 o'clock in the afternoon. She asked that a tray of tea, bread and butter (some time earlier, the Earl of Sandwich had had the idea of putting a filling between two slices of bread) and cake be brought to her room during the late afternoon. This became a habit and she began inviting friends to join her.

This break for tea became a fashionable social event. During the 1880's upper-class and society women would change into long gowns, gloves and hats for their afternoon tea which was usually served in the drawing room between four and five o'clock.
