Sussex from the Air


The Argus / Denny Rowland


When local photographer Denny Rowland went aloft with his camera to record towns, villages and familiar landmarks across Sussex, he created a unique archive of one of Britain’s most beautiful counties.

His PZL-104 Wilga single-prop aircraft can fly at extremely low speeds – down to 55mph – enabling the photographer to capture pin-sharp images of the ground below. Flying at 1,500ft over urban areas and down to 500ft over the countryside, Denny produced probably the finest-ever selection of aerial photographs of Sussex.
Brighton and Hove, Worthing, Bognor, Chichester, Eastbourne, Crawley, Haywards Heath and the rest of the county are shown in colourful detail, from castles and stately homes to solitary lighthouses and the bustle of working ports. As Richard Taylor, picture editor of The Argus, has said, “The quality of the images is truly outstanding.

In Sussex from the Air, Denny Rowland’s work is shown at its best and the book will be a long-lasting and unique souvenir of the county. It will delight all who live here and all who visit.
