15th March 2015: Lewes

The walk in Lewes was organised by a member there, Chris Smith, who began by taking us round some of the town’s sights and regaling us with stories of political activism locally, followed (since it was a greyish coldish day) by a welcome half hour in one of Lewes’s many excellent tea shops.

Thus fortified it was time to tackle one of the steep hills from whose summit we could learn about the medieval battle of Lewes (fought on an adjoining even steeper hill) and – for a couple of glorious seconds – sunbathe.  The views of town and downs were terrific.  Not the longest walk imagineable but, in particular for those of us with dodgy knees, a splendid, varied day out.
