Along the River from Lewes – An Easy Walk

I love walking in the countryside and photographing nature, water and skies along the way.
One of my regular walks, which brings all my favourite subjects together, is along the river from Lewes to Hamsey – part of the Sussex Ouse Valley Way. It is an easy walk, and practical for me as I can catch a bus to the Phoenix Causeway, from where my walk starts.

The first part of the walk takes me along the river Ouse past Tesco, on through the park to Willey’s Bridge. The bridge was opened in the 1960s and provides pedestrian access over the river between Lewes and South Malling. After crossing the bridge there is a choice of carrying on straight ahead past Lewes Pells open air swimming pool, or turning right onto the footpath to follow the river, the latter being the route I am writing about.

With the river on the right, the footpath makes easy walking, having been upgraded recently.

All along the way, a wide variety of wild plants and flowers can be seen.
