Thanks for visiting.
With all the restrictions of the last couple of Covid years, as soon as vaccinations were done, rain had stopped, the next dry day would be the day to try a couple of days away to make a change and recharge our batteries. Dry would have done, 30°C is what we got and 77,000 steps over the 4 days of exploration were thoroughly enjoyed!
Lewes in East Sussex has all the prerequisites of an interesting town - a beautiful location within the Sussex Downs, plenty of history to unravel, picturesque buildings and excellent options for local trips by train. We'll start in the town itself, which is really hilly - it's quite a steep climb up Station Street to the main High Street. Many pretty, independent shops line the High Street, which can also boast a castle. There's a striking War Memorial, by Vernon March, on the brow of the hill before the road flows down the hill to another pedestrianised shopping area at Cliffe High Street, full of the more usual shops and cafés.
