Steep and hilly lanes and roads. Too much traffic for a little town.
In a nutshell
This is mental
Lewes is very good at doing 'pretty' but it is also exceptionally talented when it comes to hills. At times, when it is scorchingly hot or chillingly cold, this inclination for the inclined is a bit of a pain - on the bottom if you have slipped on ice, or the thigh if you have to scramble up its steepest offering and are as out of shape as I am. Nevertheless, it is a small price to pay and a delight if you are freewheeling on a bicycle.* To be fair, the two main shopping areas are quite level but linked by the hill in the snap - the main car park is a short stroll from the bottom of said hill. Sorry chaps but sooner or later you're going to have to get up there!
* Though now I come to think of it, the hill in the photograph is 'one way' for traffic - and that has to go up!
