Staying at a nice B&B in Lewes not too far from the town centre. It is very similar to Totnes in that it has a castle, its own pound and a high street on a hill. The town appears to be dominated by the local brewery known as Harvey & Son and this evening I am off to the pub known as Harveys for a bite to eat.
This morning I got a taxi to a small village nearby called Kington and from there climbed up to the Way and headed for Alfriston some 12 miles away. What another glorious day for walking with little cloud in the sky and a cooling easterly breeze. Passed through a small village called Southease which has a tiny Saxon church called St. Peter's which incorporates an unusual Norman round tower. This round tower is one of three in Sussex and were built in 12th century.
Along the Way there were fine views of the South coast and in particular Newhaven and Seaford.
The walk ended today in a very pretty village called Alfriston which tends to attract quite a few tourists on coaches with their 'oohs' and 'ahhs' and cravings for cream teas. This

After clambering up to the Way from Kington I turned round to this picture of the village and in the background is Lewes
