I was hope that someone with local knowledge might be able to help. I hope I get to come down saturday for bonfire celebrations. I'll be driving down so wonder the best way to get to the event can anyone recommend. I understand parking anywhere in town is A no no how about outskirts of lewes or another town and a bus in.

I think I would drive to Ringmer and walk along the cycle path but expect a !of of people to do the same so might be busy there too.

I'd park somewhere like Hamsey and have a pleasant walk in. Anyone parking in Ringmer is likely to have their car damaged - the locals are very rough

I was wondering if it's possible to access Wyevale's car park. That's just outside the road closure and a pleasant walk in via the Stanley Turner and the Priory ruins. You'd need a torch though.

Dear Adrian lock,
Having driven around Ringmer plenty of times, The driveways are filled with Audis, BMWs and new VW golfs. There's the odd Ford Focus or people carrier here and there but even these are new models. The area is as quiet as anything. I know Ringmer well as I live nearby and I can assure you that you are not going to have any problems parking your car there for the evening! It is a very good idea as Farmer Giles suggests. The footpath/cycle path is a really good way to get in to Lewes on Nov 5th.
There have been posts over the past couple of days from people despairing at the 'trolls' on this forum and I have to say I couldn't agree more. Farmer Pru of Ringmer proves themselves to be yet another troll. He/she probably lives in one of the posh roads in Ringmer and doesn't want his/her road or surrounding roads filled up with cars parked there for the evening on Saturday! But in my opinion they should embrace the spirit of the event! It's only for one night.

As far as the suggestion of using the bus from Brighton is concerned, bear in mind that, unless extra buses are going to be laid on, the timetable is just one bus every 30 minutes. The chances of getting a space on the bus look very slim to me, especially with no trains running as well.

Wyvales car park will be closed. They and the local farmers are missing a trick by not charging for parking but maybe the local council wouldn't approve of that. There is probably some parking in Kingston but there will be bollards out and parking there is discouraged.

any potential for parking off A26 - Cock Inn etc? The pub may even be open to out of towners....

@ ACT, The footpath from the garden center to the underpass at the A27 will be closed from 02/11/16 untill 06/11/16. So no access there.

Oh well, they'll have to walk along the road then, won't they?

Aren't there going to be rail replacement bus services extra to the usual buses?

Just checked the national rail enquiries website and it's showing a normal timetable for the afternoon/evening, so there may well be a lot of disgruntled would-be rail passengers.
Still, Southern are used to that.

Thanks for all the advice everyone ill take a look .
According to the council website there is rail strike so not sure how that effects people. I'm going to be driving though as its easier for me, and bringing a friend.

There's a sign on the C7 saying "Nov 5th parking. £5 from 2 pm" with an arrow directing people to turn into Wellgreen Lane.
That could be a nice little earner for the landowner.
