EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the serene beauty of Fishbourne in West Sussex County Council. The image transports us to a bygone era when reeds were highly sought after for thatching purposes. Standing tall and proud, these reeds symbolize the rich history and craftsmanship of this rural landscape. Nestled alongside a tranquil stream, the scene exudes an idyllic countryside charm. The crystal-clear waterway gently meanders through the lush greenery, reflecting the vibrant hues of nature's palette. It is as if time stands still in this picturesque corner of West Sussex. The prominence of thatched roofs in traditional architecture is evident from the abundance of reeds growing here. These versatile plants have long been revered for their durability and insulating properties, making them an ideal choice for roofing materials. Beyond their practical use, however, these reeds represent a connection to our roots and heritage. They serve as a reminder of simpler times when communities relied on local resources to build homes that harmonized with their natural surroundings. As we gaze upon this remarkable photograph captured between 1985-2000 by David Johnston, we are transported back to an era where simplicity met sophistication in perfect harmony. Let it be a testament to the enduring allure of rural landscapes and remind us all to appreciate nature's gifts bestowed upon us – even something as humble yet significant as these magnificent reeds.
