Daytrips-Midhurst-West Sussex.

Midhurst is a nice town and it smelled of peat fires and sweets. In my hour visiting I found 1p, a nice phone box, ate a very superior sausage roll and bought some fruit bonbons. Wikipedia says- 'Midhurst  is a market town, parish and civil parish in West Sussex, England. It lies on the River Rother 20 miles (32 km) inland from the English Channel, and 12 miles (19 km) north of the county town of Chichester. The name Midhurst was first recorded in 1186 as Middeherst, meaning "Middle wooded hill", or "(place) among the wooded hills". It derives from the Old English words midd  or mid, meaning "in the middle", plus hyrst, "a wooded hill". The Norman St. Ann's Castle dates from about 1120, although the foundations are all that can now be seen. The castle, the parish church of St. Mary Magdalene and St. Denis, together with South Pond, the former fish-pond for the castle, are the only three structures left from this early period.
