Bramber in West Sussex
Firstly it has Bramber Castle. While there isn't much of Bramber Castle left these days, as you can see here after the ravages of the Civil War, where it was almost destroyed by the Roundheads, it's still an evocative place.
Secondly, Bramber has St Mary's House and Gardens. St Mary's is a Grade 1 Listed medieval house which was built in 1470 and which has many outstanding and interesting features.
Bramber used to be a much busier place, serving as a bustling port on the Adur, but, like Steyning, as the river silted up and changed its course a little Bramber found itself in the wrong place at the wrong time. Anyone wondering whether Selsey can permanently resist the ravages of the sea can guess the answer by looking at the history of Bramber, Steyning, the port of Dell Quay in Chichester Harbour and nearby Fishbourne Roman Palace, as well as Rye in East Sussex.
