    Welcome Wayne - I too live in "West" Sussex - on the other side of the pond in Sussex, New Jersey. I have a client called Midhurst Tree Care. People are forever asking me "What the hell is Midhurst?" I always tell them a town in West Sussex, and they all look at me quite perplexed and anxious for me to point it out on a map of NJ. Needless to say, I don't.

    I saw some of your work in another thread - got to tell you I love that Jeffersons sign. Beautiful work!

    Welcome to :signs101: !!!

    Cool town, it must be nice living there. By the looks of it, I would imagine it to be. How much of the surrounding area is like that? You'll have to exuse my ignorance, but it's not at all like anything I am used to seeing - it's more like traveling back in time.

    Nice job on the clock too - and there's Jefferson's! Was the town aerial shot taken from the clock scaffolding?

    Very cool indeed, thanks for sharing!

    Yes - Thats the view from the top of the tower!
    Buildings in town date from 1500-onward-and yes thers lot of loverly places around that look similar- with lots of countryside in between- I'm very lucky.

    You can see where the need for lots of Hand lettering comes in with all those ancient buildings and Georgian and Victorian shopfronts.
