This 4.5 mile circular walk starting at the All Saints Centre will uncover some of the history to be found in the urban passages and country footpaths around Lewes. We will walk alongside the River Ouse and the Cockshut Stream, taking in the Lewes Railway Land Reserve, through the history of Lewes' venerable monastic history, the gardens of a grand 16th century house and ramble along to discover some of Lewes' famous twittens. Along the way, you will hear about how historic paths are being reclaimed across England and Wales and discover some paths which have been recently put back on the map in Lewes so that they can be used and enjoyed for generations to come.
Jack Cornish is head of paths at the Ramblers, leading the Ramblers work to protect, expand and improve our path network. Jack joined the Ramblers in 2017, having recently completed a 1,550 mile walk all the way across Britain from Land’s End to John O’Groats. Jack is the author of ‘The Lost Paths', a personal journey and exploration of the deep history of English and Welsh paths and how this millennia-old network was created, has evolved, and been transformed.
An important part of Jack’s focus at the Ramblers has been the flagship Don’t Lose Your Way project which identified over 49,000 miles of paths that could be lost forever because they are not legally recorded as public rights of way. Jack has regularly appeared in the media including the BBC, Country Living.
Jack lives in southeast London, from where he sets out to complete another mission, a potential futile attempt to walk all the streets, squares and paths of the capital city.
