On our recent trip to Lewes Castle, which has incredible 360º views across Lewes and over the South Downs in all directions, I took this shot of The Avenue — the long street that stretches diagonally left from the right of the frame. If you walk up this street and continue on through the Neville neighbourhood you come out at the large field on the horizon called Landport Bottom. Then … if you’re feeling adventurous and keep walking north-west, you come first to Lewes Beacon and then, about an hour or more later, to Ditchling Beacon. It’s a lovely walk with fantastic views of the surrounding countryside. And that there’s usually an ice cream van parked in the Ditchling Beacon car park makes arriving at the halfway point — before turning back toward home — all the more enjoyable! Last time we were there Sean and I sat under a tree that offered us some much-needed shade whilst we ate a couple of delicious soft serve ice creams. Just one each though!
