See Sussex on Google Street View

11 Mar

At long last Google Street View images of Sussex along with most of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland have finally arrived on Google Maps.

I saw the Google car several times last year in the town of Horsham, Sussex (where I was working at the time) and read reports that it had been in Brighton as well.

What I didn’t expect was that Google have covered most of rural Sussex (and the rest of the country) as well, including the small village where I live and of course many of the villages where my ancestors lived.

I’ve had a quick look around the county, visiting Henfield, Brighton, Horsham and Sayers Common. I could easily spend hours on there looking at my ancestors homes, retracing some of my walks, or just looking for people doing stupid things!

So get out there (or rather stay in) and start exploring the highways and byways of Sussex.

    I discovered Street View was up and running by accident today when I went to double-check the location of a particular street – now I see it was brand-new for today! I’m already drooling, can’t wait to check out more ancestral places.

    There are so many places to look at, as well as just being nosey. I could spend hours just touring the roads of England, looking for nothing inparticular.

    Thanks for this John …. since you’ve pointed it out I’ve had hours of fun going round all sorts of places in Sussex ….. only trouble is it distracts me from all the other things I should be doing😮

    There are too many distractions these days, sorry if I have added another one!
