Bitter in Lewes

A very belated trip to Lewes on a bitterly cold day….it was freezing.
Just as we were returning to the car Harveys brewery across the river were letting off steam (I think) which I found very pleasing to my eye although the yeasty hop smell that pervades the bottom half of the High Street is a bit of an acquired taste.

On the way home we stopped off on top of Ditchling Beacon and for the first time I noticed a dew pond across the road.
I love seeing these unusual manmade features on the landscape… since I learnt how they were made many, many years ago.


  1. Aaah, Ditchling Beacon, I've cycled up that a couple of times (no getting off and pushing!) but I was a little younger...and fitter... Thanks for gthe links, I didn't know what a dew pond was.

  2. well every day is a school day as my husband fascinating about the dew pond! i love it's shape and name. great link! xX
