He said his talk, Literary Sussex, will ‘certainly include Kipling but also Hilaire Belloc, Richard Jeffries, W.H. Hudson, Sheila K. Smith, Arthur Becket and Tickner Edwardes’.

Adrian Towler, from the Shoreham Society committee, said: “For people who have never heard of some of these, this should be an enlightenment.”
