Belloc, Broadwood and Beyond

Belloc, Broadwood and Beyond is a Heritage Lottery Fund project run through Rusper Parochial Church Council. The project will be researching the life and times of Lucy Broadwood (1858 – 1929), the folk song collector, who is buried in Rusper; and the writer and poet, Hilaire Belloc (1870 – 1953), who lived for most of his life at Kingsland near Shipley.

Belloc, wrote ‘Sussex songs’ in the folk style. During this project we will be running workshops, teaching some of these songs and also some of the songs that Lucy collected on the Sussex/ Hampshire border.
