Once Upon a Time in the West of Worthing

As I cycled along the seafront this afternoon the setting sun transformed West Worthing into a blazing painted backdrop from a spaghetti western. As I looked on the scene, I recalled the rousing strains of Ennio Morricone's Ecstasy of Gold, imagining bandit Tuco running around the wooden posts and rocks at West Parade's shingle beach garden, searching for the grave of Arch Stanton.
