We plough and sow and reap and mow …”

Sussex has been home to many different types of industry and enterprise, involving in various measures wood, water, chalk, flint, wool, gravel, gypsum, clay, iron, glass, gunpowder … and, of course, warm hospitality!

The county has several museums and societies specializing in industrial history – our aim is to gather stories and personal accounts that will complement those collections and archives, by telling and bringing to life tales of work traditions.
