This was my first podcast, a walk-about in Rudyard Kiplings'
village Rottingdean in Sussex on a hot summers day last year.
Kipling was the author of the Jungle Book and many other stories.
Kipling was born in Bombay on December 30th 1865, son of John
Lockwood Kipling, an artist and teacher of architectural sculpture,
and his wife Alice. His mother was one of the talented and
beautiful Macdonald sisters, four of whom married remarkable men,
Sir Edward Burne-Jones, Sir Edward Poynter, Alfred Baldwin, and
John Lockwood Kipling himself.
