We recently received an email and YouTube video link from Dee Handyside, an ex-Burwash resident, now living in Queensland, Australia. She wrote:

" A return to my home village, Burwash in East Sussex, England. Although it may have been home to Rudyard Kipling and his National Trust house is worth a visit, why not stop afterwards in Burwash village itself, with its Norman church, smugglers gravestones with scull & crossbones & 17th Century pubs? Stop off at Kipling's actual butcher (Jarvis Family since 1870) where you can buy some famous Burwash Beauty sausages. Look at the listed houses which reside high over this conservational area. And lastly, walk at least one of their splendid public footpaths, crossing farms and cottage gardens before finishing your day in the Burwash Village Tea Rooms. The final shot is of the me looking over 'Pooks Hill' - a famous Kipling book - a place dear to my heart."
