Lewes seems to be full of people who used to be a vet or something about twenty years ago, it feels like a weird dream sometimes with all those oddly peripheral characters, much older, looking rather lost.

It started a few of years ago. Actors discovered Lewes is a great place to be left alone. We are so arrogant and full of ourselves that it is beneath us to approach the 'vaguely famous', which is why they love living here.
Like Paul Newman said, itâ??s like being in a dream world. Go to Bills on a Saturday morning and you'll be sharing the cafĂ© with Kevin Whately (Lewis), Jack Shepherd (Wycliffe) and Mark Williams (Fast Show, Mr Weasley, Harry Potter).
I like it. I look around and see so many familiar faces; I forget that they donâ??t know me â?? just feel Iâ??m surrounded by friends.

Does Kevin Whately livein Lewes?
Many years ago I remember members of the Royal family in Lewes. Princess Margaret in Cliffe High St getting cigarettes from the off-licence. Prince Charles en route to visiting Major Shand....
In Brighton most of the cast of The Bill are retired there

Spot on Lobster. I see quite a few known faces around Lewes.A smile,a pleasant hallo can be sometimes a chance to chat. I did this in Tesco once to Jack Shepard, quietly without causing a fuss, I asked if he minded me chatting to him. He was very pleasant and appreciated my discretion(I hope).Angela Bruce has been here for a while now, she too is very nice to speak to.I asked her about the Batman and Robin episode with David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst when she was the Mayoress. Not the only role she has played of course but,that was something I wanted to know. We once had an actor named Carl Rick who was in a James Bond film. We had Michael York"s parents living here at one time. The close proximity to London (one hour on the train)the laid back people of Lewes,a quite, safe environment I feel sure, attracts many to our lovely town.
