BONFIRE IS JUST FOR LEWES THIS YEAR- unless you can squeeze on a Brighton Bus

The Brighton buses 28 and 29 WILL be running on bonfire night.  The Brighton buses web site says that after 5pm:
Services will not be able to serve Lewes Prison, High Street, Waitrose and Phoenix Causeway and Tesco’s. During these times services will need to divert via the A27 and Cuilfail Tunnel serving the stop opposite Hardwood’s Land Rover. Services will then turn using the roundabout to use the A26 to Malling to resume normal route.
Services will not be able to serve Phoenix Causeway, Lewes Bus Station, High Street and Lewes Prison. During these times Services will use the A26 and will go direct to the bus stop opposite Hardwood’s Land Rover. Services will then divert via Cuilfail Tunnel and use the A27 to resume normal route from Kingston roundabout.
Please note that this year only, buses will be allowed on the A26 between Southerham Roundabout and Ear Wig Corner and buses may have to wait to be allowed through the road closure.”
Up to 5pm they anticipate running normally. I’m not sure that they have clocked just how much demand there is likely to be.
Compass buses will stop mid  or early afternoon. Full details here

There will be no trains stopping at Lewes or nearby stations.( Glynde, Falmer, Lewes, London Road (Brighton), Moulsecoomb or Southease) after mid-day.  There are no scheduled services to Cooksbridge on this day anyway.  I wonder why London Road is closed? 




Here is this month’s selection:
The Stanmer Skyline Walk
A grand circuit of the skyline above Stanmer village, with woodlands and varied far
reaching views, on a route originally designed for wheelchair users and so mostly
firm underfoot in all seasons and with no stiles.  A few gates.  5.5 miles
The Lavender Line Walk, Isfield
3.8miles 6.2km. This walk offers a short and level rural ramble through the fields
and woods of Isfield and also offers you the chance to visit the Lavender Line,
one of the more intimate and uncrowded preserved heritage rail lines.
Ashdown Forest
Ashdown Forest is one of the great heath lands of Southern Britain. It sits on the
highest ridge top of the High Weald and is the largest free public access space
in the South East.  Sadly it is infested with cars.  But this walk lets you explore the
Forest using frequent buses. 10km, 6 miles.



The ways that people used to get from A to B are an important part of our history. Whether they are called roads, bridleways or paths, they are all highways.  Common law says that once a route is a highway it will always be a highway, unless there is a legal event such as a stopping up order, which closes it. But at the end of 2025 this rule comes to an end.  Any highway which existed before 1949 and which is not on the definitive map of rights of way or the adopted roads map will no longer be a right of way. There are routes that are in every-day use that are threatened, as well as lost ways that need to be reclaimed.
Experts estimate that in a typical parish there are around 6 or more rights of way that will be lost at the end of 2025 if action is not taken.
A small group of ramblers, equestrians and others has been formed in Sussex to claim these routes as rights of way before it is too late. Can you find any routes that you or those you know use on a regular or occasional baise that are not on the definitive map or the map of streets?  Would you like to do some historical research to find more routes?
