East Sussex

East Sussex is a county in the South East of England that borders the English Channel and, when combined with its neighbour West Sussex, has a population of 1,609,500. East Sussex also shares its emblematic flag, six martins on a field of azure blue, with West Sussex. The six martins are thought to represent the old county of Sussex’s traditional rapes, or districts.

East Sussex House Prices

It is difficult enough to generalise in terms of house prices when dealing with a large city. It becomes even more difficult to adequately descry house price trends when dealing with counties, which have several distinct areas and wide variations across regions. For instance, it is almost axiomatic to note that house buyers in East Sussex would pay far more to buy property in the centre of Brighton than they would to buy a comparable house in Hastings town centre.

However, having said that, house prices across East Sussex have generally gone up by around seven and a half per cent over the past year. House prices in the county are also around four per cent higher than they were in 2010, when they experienced a mini peak following the housing market crash of 2007/8, before falling away again soon after.

House prices in East Sussex are less expensive than the nearby counties of West Sussex and Surrey and are similar to those witnessed in the bordering county of Kent. Poynings is the most expensive area in East Sussex, while house buyers in St Leonards generally pay less than people buying houses in any other area of the county.

East Sussex has been part of the London and South East property hotbed that has led to many commentators describing a housing bubble having arisen in the area. East Sussex’s proximity to London has led to the area being popular for people commuting into London from the area and the county has also developed as part of the ‘London Satellite Zone’ phenomenon that has led to property prices in areas around the capital rising rapidly. Brighton & Hove in particular has witnessed some of the highest rates of house price inflation anywhere in the country over recent months. However the most recent data points to a cooling of the East Sussex housing market, again in accordance with London and the rest of the South East. Many factors, including tougher rhetoric and stricter borrowing rules emerging from the Bank of England recently and fears over the consequences of an increasingly imminent rise in the base rate of interest, have led to the development of a widespread belief that house price growth will continue to slow over the coming months. This will assuage the fears of many economists and housing market experts who feared that the London and South East property bubble would have to burst sooner rather than later and that the repercussions would be disastrous.

East Sussex Culture & Attractions

For hundreds of years East Sussex, along with its namesake county to the West, has held a reputation for a certain level of separatism and culture distinction in comparison to the rest of the country. Residents of Sussex also have a centuries old reputation for independence of thought and for not being easily pushed around, a sentiment which is crystallised in Sussex’s dialectical motto: We Will Not Be Druv.

Known for its mixture of idyllic countryside and seaside resorts, East Sussex has a firmly established tourist industry. Settlements such as Brighton have been known as seaside retreats since a social movement that expounded the values of sea-bathing arose in Georgian times and expanded during the Victorian era. East Sussex in general, and Eastbourne in particular, experiences more sunshine than anywhere else in the UK.

Brighton & Hove is the only city in East Sussex, and only part of the settlement lies in East Sussex, with most lying in West Sussex. The largest arts festival in the country, The Brighton Festival, occurs annually in Brighton and the city also plays host to one of the largest and most iconic Pride festivals in the UK. Brighton & Hove is also the main centre of retail and nightlife in the county. East Sussex also has a strong tradition of bonfire celebrations and a rich musical heritage.

East Sussex History & Tradition

There is distinct evidence of human settlement in East Sussex for several millennia. The Long Man of Wilmington is the oldest representation of a human form in Europe. The word Sussex derives relatively literally from the Olde English for South Saxons, in the same way as Essex is named after the East Saxons. According to legend the ancient Kingdom of Sussex was founded in 477 by the legendary Saxon king Aella. Aella was the first Bretwalda (overlord) of Southern Briton and he was famously defeated by King Arthur’s forces at Mount Badon. Sussex was eventually absorbed into the kingdom of Wessex, a fact still attested to by the place name Alfriston, which derives its name from Alfred the Great, who maintained a residence there.

In the 11th century East Sussex was famously the landing point of the Norman invasion that irrevocably changed British history forever. William the Conqueror’s forces landed at Pevensey at fought the iconic battle with Harold Godwinson’s forces that is so famously commemorated in the Bayeux Tapestry. Legend has it that, in order to thank God for granting him victory, William I built Battle Abbey on the very spot where Harold I fell.

Another famous battle occurred at Lewes in 1264 when, during the First Baron’s War, an army under Simon de Montfort defeated Henry III’s forces and even took the king captive, though he later exchanged his son, the future Edward I, as hostage in his place. The subsequent Mise of Lewes also saw the calling of the first parliament in English history that was not ordered under royal authority.

Due to its location on the south coast, East Sussex formed much of the frontline during The Hundred Years War and the Cinque Ports were created in this time in order to help divide the country. Again due to its proximity to the English Channel, and thus to Continental Europe, East Sussex, and particularly its airfields, also played a significant role during the Battle of Britain. The county also served a major planning and launching point for the D-Day landings that so famously turned the tide of the Second World War.

The historic county of Sussex was divided into the two distinct counties of East and West Sussex as a consequence of the Local Government Act 1972.
