Synopsis

The Sussex coastline is thought to be the final resting place of over 4,000 ships, with the areas around such fabled locations as Beachy Head and the Seven Sisters claiming many victims. This book sheds light on the intriguing stories behind the many wrecks off the Sussex coast, caused by the dangerous cliffs, shallow sandbanks and rapidly changing weather of the English Channel. A prolific writer on local history with a life-long interest in the sea, author Wendy Hughes guides the reader through a wealth of tales from the sea off Sussex: from the Indiana, whose cargo of citrus fruits washed ashore to feed hungry locals, right up to the recent wreck of the Ice Prince, which deposited many tons of timber onto Worthing beach in 2008. Illustrated with an impressive collection of images, this book is sure to delight shipping enthusiasts and people with links to the Sussex area, as well as those who are fascinated by the sea.
