Lewes Railwayland Nature Reserve

Hello

Thanks for popping in.

At this time of year a wander through the Lewes Railwayland Nature Reserve is a real treat.  All the wildflowers are blooming and the mixture of scents in the hot early evening air is delicious.

The land used to be a railway marshaling yard before it was reclaimed by nature. Four distinct areas are fed by the chalk Winterbourne Stream, which is fed by the Downland hills and only runs when it's been raining.  In Winter it floods, watering the area and keeping it in good condition.










The photos don't do it justice.
