Many years a go there used to be 3 big traditions in the Uk, we had the Winter Beltane solstice on December 21st - the shortest day,. There was December the 25th aka Christ Mass, and then there was January 1st where beating the bounds took place.
Other names for this were walking the bounds, perambulation (where the word prams springs from ?) but my favourite is Beating of the bounds, traditionally done with willow sticks to drive the spirits out, while showing locals where boundaries were - especially young boys who were bumped at the main locations . Clearly a pagan tradition that then got "integrated" into christianity where the parish boundaries would be walked.
Chichester is one of the smallest cities, with one of the highest tourist rates, and apparently a non existent budget for road maintenance.
it has a glorious cycle route called the Centurian way that skirts the city from the Fishbourne edge all the way to west dean. however some of the access to it is by 1990s design [naff] award winning entrances.
its main downfall is it city center velo route.
