About this photo

Good's Stores, bakery, Post Office and café was fire-damaged in the 1970s. The site has now been redeveloped for housing. The Blue Idol is a Quaker Friends Meeting House and guesthouse which was converted for William Penn in 1691. The Selsey Arms Inn is half-timbered with a more recent façade. It has a dog-wheel that once drove a meat roasting spit in an inglenook fireplace. Nearby is a memorial to a World War Two fighter airfield, which was used by the American Air Force.
