Had a restless night, hardly daring to believe that Nick Crane actually referred to Lewes in 'West Sussex'. I may write to Points Of View. If I can be ars*d.

He was on about the Lewes Pound, as they have a Totnes Pound too (which last night's episode featured). Some horribly familiar comparisons with Lewes too....

Really annoys me when Lewes isn't referred to as the County Town of Sussex.

Sharders is right, what was really annoying was that he he said it was in "WEST" Sussex. Blood and sand!

The programme didn't really grab me after the first 10 mins or so. Did Nicholas Crane mention what jobs had taken the place of all the ones that had gone since he first visited Totnes in his youth?
Other than the one bloke with the rickshaw - though fair play to him for spotting a business opportunity.

There aren't quite as many new-age reiki-tiedye-feng shui-buddhist types in Lewes as there are in Totnes.

EBM you goon. Lewes is the county town of EAST Sussex. Chichester will be so upset with you!

Let Chichester be upset - they've got the best church anyway. Lewes is the county town of Sussex. Never did have any time for this east and west nonsense!

Like the idea of a rickshaw service, if I could afford one I would do it in Lewes, EAST SUSSEX myself, good idea for all the drunks on a saturday night as they just hang their heads over the side, no clearing up as there is in taxis.

Brother Bealknap, the back gives me jip in the colder weather, but Cromwell's commissions give me no time to sit around moping.

I was watching a programme on Lewes the other day, and not only was it referred to as being in West Sussex, but they didn't even feature Bonfire!!!! However, they did show The Chalk Pit in Offham......
