Lewes High Street contains much of interest (see Walk 755). From there walk through some pleasing parkland and out of Lewes along the meandering Ouse river. Then, after some conservationist wetlands, it's up past the Blacksmith's Arms to some typical open chalk hills and open fields. You pass by the Lewes Racecourse stables and the site of the Battle of Lewes, where Magna Carta was finally enforced.

Yes, a nice walk, though we walked after a rainy week and most of the route was very muddy and slippery underfoot. Excellent views of Lewes.

Didn't get lost once, very good directions. View from plateau beautiful. Will do other walks in this area.
