Visits

Arundel and Amberley with Chris Maxse

Wednesday 22 July 2015

For the sixth year, blue badge guide Chris Maxse continued his tours of towns and churches of Sussex with a visit to Arundel and Amberley. Commencing on the banks of the River Arun, we meandered upward through the streets of Arundel viewing the predominantly Georgian and Victorian architecture before arriving at the Catholic Cathedral Church of Our Lady & St Philip Howard at the highest point of the town.
