When we were thinking of moving to Lewes we noticed estate agents referred to 'the popular Nevill estate'. We took a look up there and it seemed like a massive council estate in one of the less salubrious London suburbs. What a lucky escape it turns out we had.

Sorry Londoner even though I agree super k was a bit arrogant the nevill never was a council estate. I lived there untill a year ago and only a very small percentage was council owned. 97% was private houseing. The council sides are ousedale, landport and malling

Much of the Nevill was built in the 1930s, before council housing really existed in any quantity.

Oh settle down all of you, I was brought up on a council estate - it doesn't equate that you are chav scum just because you live in a council house. Equally it doesn't mean you're born with an ounce of class just because you happen to have been brought up in middle class luxury. Get over yourselves with your prejudices, what does it matter who built the house or who owns it? I know many people who would consider themselves upper middles class who are common as muck, and many without two pennies to rub together who have far more about them.

I had to laugh at Londoner's likened it to a "massive" London council estate. A big estate in London would be as big as the whole of Lewes, not just one little bit. The one I grew up on had a population of 35,000 way back in 1965, and it's been expanded since then.
They also usually have a fair few blocks of flats as well as houses. The Nevill has, I think, only 16 flats in two blocks.
It seems Londoner knows precious little more about London than he/she does about Lewes.

I live in the Nevill and I certainly do not see it as a 'council estate' - just have a drive up South Way or Highdown Road for instance. I have a large house with a large garden - now where can you find that in the the High Street or the centre of Town ?. I would add that I used to live in Paddock Road, which is considered 'respectable', but there is at least one council property down there, not to mention at that time the local cocaine dealer !
One other thing, Londoner, it is people like you and the rest of the DFL's that have pushed the house prices up in Lewes and forced the locals to move away from the centre of town into the cheaper estate properties in the first place

Neville's not so bad although these days Malling and even Ousedale aren't nearly as bad as they used to be. What with the steady influx of DFL's pushing the prices up, there's more and more normal nice people moving into what used to be seen as the scummy areas as that's all they can afford.

Londoner, you employ a very strange kind of logic !! Just because a property is cheaper than one in the town centre, how exactly does that make it a council house ?? Part of the Nevill estate used to be council it is true, (as were/are houses all over the town) but that does not make the whole estate council. If it did then surely you would have to extend the same argument to the whole of Lewes. How can you live with yourself therefore, knowing that you now live in an enormous, chav infested, benefit cheating scum ridden council estate ? Still, it's better than London though isn't it !

I can't understand why people are so touchy about the Nevill being described as being 'LIKE a massive council estate' (that's what I called it in my first post). Are you such snobs that you'd be ashamed to live in a council estate? I did in London for many years and don't feel at all ashamed of it. It was what my parents could afford.

Yes, but in your later post you did. Besides, if you have not got anything against council estates, then why look down your nose at them (or places LIKE them) now ?, and more to the point, why even feel the need to say anything in the first place ? Furthermore, you accuse us of being snobs when you clearly made your decision not to live on the Nevill Estate because you thought it was like a council estate and therefore in some way inferior. You even go as far as to say you had a 'lucky escape'. Sounds like a slur on the Nevill to me. Saying it is not a council estate meanwhile is not being snobby, it is merely stating a fact in response to your/High Street Royals mis informed statements, and to the general implication that we are all working class, chavs and benefit scrounging scum !!
Having previously lived in the town centre, I can say from experience that the town centre has more traffic, dirt, noise, vandalism, drunk kids throwing up, pissing (or worse) in doorways and scattering kebab wrappers in the street, than where I live now. I also didn't have a garden to speak of, I had nowhere to park my car, no views other than cars in the street, and despite being a town house, it was actually considerably smaller than what I have now. Perhaps you could fill us in therefore on what is so great about that ?

Living up on the Nevill I notice that the lads that congregate on one of the corners of the Crescent are generally no trouble at all.
In fact I think it's wonderful that they look after someone who obviously has learning difficulties. I know several residents have said there is one lad who, when people go past this group, just screams, or shouts incoherently - perhaps he is not able to speak properly?
So it's nice to see they take this lad under their wing rather than beating him up or bullying him.

What I object to, and the reason I have entered this argument, is the ridiculous stereotyping that is applied by people such as Londoner and High Street Royalty, which I can only imagine is due to their own prejudices and ignorance of the facts. If, therefore, having pride in, and sticking up for the place where I live is being a moron in your eyes, then so be it.

I lived on Landport for 25 years and went to Wallands school and Priory and so I knew all the Neville, Wallands, other Lewesians (Ringmer too) and of course all the other Landport boys and girls. We grew up together and most of us cared nothing about social standing, all we cared about was having fun and enjoying life.
Yes, I came acoss the odd idiot, who thought I was not as good as them because my parents rented a home from the council rather than rented for 25 years via a mortgage from a bank. They were not so voiciferous when my exam results were better then their's.
I watched the telly and saw pictures beamed in from around the world and realised that Landport, compared to many places in the world, was a damned good place to live.
In those 25 years I never knew anyone who was burgled or had their car vandalised. There was the odd drunk who had a fight but was as nice as pie the next day.
I moved away from Lewes in 95 to see a bit of the world and having seen it, I count my blessings that I grew up in Lewes, amongst so many fantastic people and in such a great and on the whole peaceful environment. The Lewes I remember was a community where most people knew eachother or at least had heard of eachother.
From reading this post and others I gather my beloved Lewes has changed since my departure. There was certainly no what you call DFL's back then in the mid 90's.
This is my first post on this site, I normally just read and enjoy but some of the posters here have acted out of character from the Lewes I remember. No doubt a lot can change since I left in 95 but for the 25 years I lived there things were constant.
I now live in a small town in Devon and I settled here because it reminded me of the Lewes of my youth. No major crime, no serious drugs, good schools and a good community and I'm glad my kids will grow up in a similar environment to what I did.
I will always love Lewes and the people I remember and take my kids there for holidays. I truly hope it's not become as bad as some of the posters describe. All the council estates were happy places just like the rest of Lewes in my youth. I think that Lewes, wherever you may live, is still a pretty damn good place to reside compared to many places in this uncertain world.
