“In every man’s heart there is a secret nerve that answers to the vibrations of beauty”
The beauty of the English landscape is shown off at its best here in the East Sussex market town of Lewes. Lewes is situated on the Greenwich Meridian, in a gap in the South Downs, cut through by the River Ouse. The ruined castle provides the perfect point from which to admire the stunning landscapes.
“You can see Lewes lying like a box of toys under a great amphitheatre of chalk hills … on the whole it is set down better than any town I have seen in England.”—William Morris
