About the book

Home to a magnificent Norman Cathedral, Chichester was created by the Romans and developed as a thriving market town in the Middle Ages. The Georgians added an array of splendid buildings which still enhance the city today, and during recent decades Chichester has emerged as a major centre for the arts, with an enviable reputation. In this captivating compendium of fascinating facts and quirky true stories, Phil Hewitt reveals the intriguing history and the hidden delights of one of our best-loved cathedral cities.
