Lewes Town Partnership has just published a new leaflet in partnership with Lewes Tourist Office, with 75% funding from South Downs National Park. It aims to promote car-free visits from Lewes into the national park – for visitors and for residents – and to enhance the public understanding of the landscapes and heritage of the South Downs. That way it should encourage more visits to Lewes, to help the local economy, and to increase participation in walking and cycling.
Car-Free Days Out from Lewes is exactly what it says – ideas for visits by public transport and on foot to the countryside and sights near Lewes.
One day out is Lewes to Alfriston, which can be divided into several segments, returning or travelling out by public transport – walking over Mount Caburn to Glynde, using the rail link from there to Lewes, walking on to Firle, Charleston, Berwick Church and Alfriston – all of which are served by Compass Bus 125. Plenty of great stops to see historic sights and beautiful scenery, with a good smattering of pubs too.
The print run is 10,000 and the leaflets are available free of charge from Lewes Tourist Information Centre and will be distributed elsewhere.
If your business would like to stock some, please call in at Lewes Tourist Information Centre and they can give you however many you require.
The leaflet is packed with information, including dedicated cycle paths and some ideas for cycle rides from Lewes.
