I liked the very exact figure of 740 people moving to Lewes from London in the past year. I wonder what that is as a percentage of the whole population of Lewes? Even if it's only 2%, if the DFL figures remain at that rate, in 50 years, there'd be no true Lewesians left.
Still, I can't really grumble, being a Down From Surrey and all.

The way London is going, in 50 years Lewes will be a melting pot of ethnic colour and culture, because the DFL will be non white, and there will be no longer a need for Diversity Lewes, and all the Refugees welcome banners can be recycled. Mind you, Kim and I may of blown all this sh.t up by then.

The 740 figure will be for lewes district, so including Seaford,newhaven and the villages.
Some of course may be natives returning after a stint at university or working in the smoke.

Totally agree with your comment. Lewes is full of inbred hillbillys with webbed feet and 6 fingers on each hand.
There's a big wide world out there which is worth seeing.

Thanks for pointing that out, Observer. I should have taken the time to check the source material. Across the whole district, 740 is negligible.
Tbh Donald, I think I'd prefer the diverse "melting pot" to the white, middle-class enclave Lewes seems to be turning into. You can scarcely move for hipster beards and Sea Salt raincoats in the precinct some weekends, and waxed jackets that have never gone further than the Lewes Arms.

From the Guardian report: "This has been the case in the Sussex town of Lewes, to which 740 Londoners moved last year"
I'm happy that they are actually moving to Lewes, finding property, rather than the property being sold by greedy owners to even greedier buy-to-let landlords. I suspect many are having to pay rent to greedy locals too.

I can't blame the dfls for wanting to move to our glorious town, but I can blame them for all of its downfalls. I miss the Lewes of old.

All this DFL talk smacks of xenophobia as far as I can see and is very narrow minded. I can see how it's sad to loose tradition but we have to accept that things change.

You cannot blame people from moving out of Londonistan, and only visiting it in order to earn a living. The real problems for the former capital of the British empire will come when the commuters rebel against the truculent rail unions, and work from home.

I am down from (north) London and honestly I can't see what everyone has against us. In many respects we are bringing Lewes into the 21st century. While I love the town's traditions, like the wonderful pagan festivities at Bonfire Night, Lewes is terribly undiverse and some of the locals' attitudes worry me deeply. The number of England flags I have seen down here is shocking.
