This day out is both entertaining and easy on the feet, with morning coffee and a chicken lunch or veggie alternative all included in the tour fee.
We meet at 10.30am in Bramber for morning refreshments. Many of the old cottages in Bramber were built with flint pilfered from the ruins of the Norman castle. This is one of the prettiest villages in West Sussex, so you will be pleased to know we return here for lunch. We begin our day by visiting the architectural masterpiece that is the soaring Victorian Gothic-style chapel which forms the spiritual heart of Lancing College.
We return to beautiful Bramber for lunch, leaving members to treat themselves to a dessert if they want on the day.
In genteel Goring we find a quite astonishing ceiling at the Catholic church. A local artist and parishioner has created a unique reproduction of Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel ceiling. This labour of love and faith took five years to complete and makes this one of the most unusual churches you will ever visit.
Lastly we drive to the seaside at Worthing for a walk along the front and time to buy a drink to round off the day. We plan to leave at 4.45pm.
