What’s in a View – and what makes it so special?
A Talk by Bill Avenell
Bill Avenell will select some of the iconic views of West Sussex and explore their geographical origins, their historical significance, their artistic value and other factors that make them so popular. The talk has plenty of good-natured humour and demonstrates some insightful local knowledge. Bill Avenell has a passion for unusual features in the landscape. He is a specialist in topography and taught geography at a public school. Most of us were taught geography at school, but not topography, which is a field of geoscience, studying forms and features of land surfaces.
Bill will explain the impact that physical geography has made on our daily lives and introduce us to some interesting features and places in West Sussex including the South Downs and Fulking Escarpment, Sussex-by-the-Sea, Hammer Ponds , Chichester Harbour, Arundel from the South and Hunston and the Wey & Arun Canal.
