Pulborough in West Sussex is a large village of approximately 5,000 inhabitants. An interesting fact about the area is that cricket has been a game played amongst locals since 1799. For young people looking to get involved there are several clubs for different ages, as well as a girl's club. There is also a popular angling club which has schemes to widen the appeal of the sport through programs specifically designed for young people. As quirky as it may seem there is an annual lawn mower race, which is not to be missed. Competitors take the 12 hour non-stop race seriously, having spent the year building and tweaking their motor to perfection. Another attraction is the South Downs light railway. Old fashioned steam trains run throughout the summer months which is a feat that can't be found in many other parts of the country.
