These sites dont actually seem to clarify the streets used. All very vague. Suppose you just have to be lucky in the right place at the right time. Expect all the schools know whats happening though !!

How come no one who lives in Lewes is carrying the torch?

I don't know how they've divvied up who's carrying what and when, but I know that a Lewesian is carrying the torch in Arundel because his family is staying with me to watch him do it and then celebrate!

It might be a good idea to have a tidy up then - Lewes is a mess at the moment - Malling Street has weeds growring all over the pavements, most paving slabs are cracked or broken (or patched with crappy bits of tar) Brian the Snail could do with a jet wash and everywhere needs a litter pick (by a man with a brush and a bin bag rather than one of those crap machines)

Can anyone actually run in Lewes then ?

Strange that the route doesn't go down cliffe high street - the most obviously photogenic part of the town. instead it goes over the phoenix causeway and then up school hill. finishes at top end of high street/ western road and then is driven to the next stage - Eastbourne - where some Lewesians will be carrying the torch !!!

Many people, inlcuding Norman I believe, have tried to get this changed about not going over Cliffe bridge but they will not listen

Is the clifffe the only part of lewes? No! Get over it

Oh dear. My chip / shoulder interface alarm is flashing red! I don't live in the Cliffe anymore, despite my moniker, but I do think Cliffe Bridge and Lewes Cathedral are a bit more photogenic than Phoenix Causeway.

Cliffe is the nicest part of the town I don't think there is much question about that, the torch should definitely go over Cliffe bridge and should be carried by someone in a black and white stripey jumper

I think the torch route should be via the Cliffe, and over the traditional bridge. Can't we arrange an "incident" to close Phoenix causeway on the day?
