I dont think any of our housing estates can come out smelling of roses!

I live near the Ousedale and given how many people live there, I'm amazed at how quiet it is. You get a few twats playing their music full blast with the windows open, plus some boy racers speeding around the local roads, but most of the people there just get on with their lives and don't bother anyone else, so I wouldn't call it a boil on the town's bum.

I think we need to get this in proportion...this is Lewes.....some of you lot should try living in inner city housing estates....e.g. the street where Shannon Matthews lived...it sounds like hell on earth

Yeah, we take it for granted, but Lewes isnt a bad place to live. Sure it has its areas of concern, but like the Inspector says, theres a hell of a lot worse places to live.

Unfortunately, there still a lot of people....including a high percentage on here, who look down their snooty noses at people who live in Ousedale.
I was there 10 years ago for about 2 and a half years and i really enjoyed it there. I made a lot of friends who i still keep in contact with but most of the people have now moved on. Anyone who was a pain was quickly sorted by some of the residents (ie there was a convicted paedophille living there who was very quickly shown the error of his ways !!!)
The flats and masonettes are pretty large inside and they're well built. I was lucky to have a small garden too.
Inspector mouse has hit the nail on the head.

We all need somewhere to live. Some were lucky to get on the housing ladder when prices were realistic and Lewes was not a "delightful little town to bring up Gemima" for the DFLs. No one could have predicted how steeply house prices would rise and some people were caught out. Not everyone has high salaries and do the jobs we all rely on to keep our town running. They therefore cannot afford the ridiculous house prices in this town. If you can just consider yourself fortunate and do not criticise others. Yes there are a small percentage of rough people in this town but the majority of people on estates are good honest hard working people and we could all learn a lot about their comraderie and friendship.

Make no mistake Ousedale is the pits of Lewes, everyone knows it so thats why it doesn't get any mention in the threads here.

Hello. I am aware that literally no one has posted here for almost 10 years. But concerning the Ousedale area in Lewes I was doing some investigating into my past. Basically, when I was a baby I used to live in Ousedale with my mum and dad. My mother was a women called Tracy. My father was a man called Alan. I donít quite know what went down between mum and dad but nevertheless I have never encountered my father ever again since the divorce. I predict somewhen between 1998 to around 2005 (although Iím really not sure) Alan, my mum and me lived in Ousedale. I am currently looking for my father - hence the inveestigation. I am just wondering if there is anyone who happens to live in Ousedale who may have remembered my father Alan, my mother Tracy or me as a baby (my name is Rosie). If you do, any information on my fathers wherebouts, what heís gotten up to would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I like the walk along the ouse to Hamsey church, the view from the top of the Castle, Pells pool, the antique shops and boot fair, the lion in the window of the 15c bookshop, keere street
