The Full English is the one meal that England does really well, but what does it say about us? I undertook a road trip around the country exploring the meaning of modern Englishness through the medium of breakfast, from silver service to the Full Muslim in Bradford, for the Sunday Times. Very revealing it was, too.
There are few villages more English, more feudal and more fascinating than Firle, nestling quietly in the South Downs. It’s beautiful, ancient and unsettling.
