   Inside Out - South: Monday 27th January, 2003

The seven Sussex things that make the South heaven

Fishermen at sunset

The Seven Good Things of Sussex

Of a score of good things found outside heaven
The land of Sussex was granted seven
The choicest of those I often feel
Is the oily, glutinous Pulborough eel Though the Selsea cockle would be the best
The Chichester lobster’s the lordliest dish The herring of Rye is the tastiest dish
The mullet of Arundel would have my vote If I could but forget the Amberley trout The wheatear of Bourne whenever it’s about.
