A charming village

By Tony Deane, taxi driver

"We travel further east again to Brighton's only village which is Rottingdean. As you go through the village there is a charming pond with ducks and various waterfowl on. If you look straight across the pond you can see the house of the famous writer Rudyard Kipling."

Rottingdean is indeed a pretty and historic village. Does anybody know any information about the woman who was accused of being a witch and was drowned in the old pond many years ago?

I think I've read everything there is to read about the history of Rottingdean and I've never seen anything about anyone being drowned in the pond!

Came to Rottingdean today to show the lovely duck pond to my guest from USA. What a shock - no ducks just weeds.
