Upper Room, Perrymount Methodist Church, Perrymount Road, Haywards Heath, RH16 3DN
(near the railway station, about 200yds up from the Clair Hall)

"The Ouse – Source to Sea": speaker Geoffrey Mead. A pictorial journey looking at how geology shapes the physical and human landscape and rural and urban economy. Dr Mead, a tutor at the University of Sussex, is a popular and well-known figure in adult education history teaching circles in Sussex and his talks and walks are renowned. His work with the Centre for Community Engagement at the University of Sussex has featured in the national press, with, for example, his academic tours of Brighton’s murky past giving a boost to the new film version of Graham Greene’s classic novel, Brighton Rock. His doctoral research is in the development of inter-war suburbia and the associated issues of landscape change and housing issues. He currently lectures and teaches in the areas of Sussex coastal landscapes, Sussex agricultural history and Sussex industrial history.

This will be a joint meeting with Solent & Arun Branch and Kent & East Sussex Branch of the IWA.

Refreshments available. Ample parking round the back of the church.

Please enter by the side door.

Please put the date in your diaries now. We look forward to seeing you there.
