I'm shortly moving to Lewes and would be grateful if some Lewesians would post their favourite walks around this beautiful area for me to explore. Many thanks.

There are some good books in the Lewes tourist information office, with off the beaten track routes. I like going up on the Downs by Landport Bottom. I'd also recommend getting the train to Glynde and walking back to Lewes across the hilltops.

Tourist info has lots of books on local walks. There's a local walkers group and ramblers, but the best thing is to get the local OS maps and just go exploring. Our fave walks from Lewes are
1. Willeys bridge to Hamsey Church along the river. Level walking
2. Juggs Lane up onto Kingston ridge , loop down through Kingston and back via Spring Barn Farm and bridle way past Stanley Turner ground to Cockshut Lane, taking in priory ruins and tea in The grange (when cafe is open).
3. Up Chapel Hill, cut up to the martyrs memorial, circle round the top of Malling Combe and down by Mill Road( or you can cut down the Combe to the allotments but very steep)
4. Up Chapel hill to golf course, walk over to Mt Caburn and down to Glynde - back by train or Shanks pony!
Enjoy your walking!
