Margaret Ward was born and brought up in Rottingdean and lived there all her life. This autobiographical book is a sequel to One Camp Chair in the Living Room, published by QueenSpark in 1988.

In this booklet Margaret recalls her childhood in Rottingdean in the 1920s, local places and people in the 1930s and life in the village during World War Two. This memoir represents a valuable first-person snapshot of rural Sussex life in the first half of the 20th century.

Memories of Rottingdean is now out of print but is available as a PDF download of the original text on a pay-what-you-like basis. You can download it by clicking here. To make a donation for this booklet, please click on the button below.
