Set your life alight in Lewes

Set your life alight in Lewes

When it comes time to make a change to where you live this year, you may be looking for a range of different things from your new town or city. Some of these may include a vast range of amenities or different activities to do at night. However, many other people may turn their eye towards some of the smaller places around the UK which will allow them to feel like they are a part of something of a community, with events and meetings abound in these towns.

If this is the sort of thing that you are looking for, why not take the chance to move towards property for sale in Lewes or similar places? The Sussex town is located near to Brighton, which makes it a perfect location for commuters. The 15,000 population also means that the town will be quiet, and a great place to bring up kids.

However, events are often what can raise community spirit in smaller rural areas such as market towns, and this is an area where Lewes does not disappoint. It plays host to one of the largest Guy Fawkes Night celebrations of any area of the UK, during which most of the residents come out to be part of something together in their town.

Celebrations on bonfire night also include the burning of crosses to resemble martyrs who were burned for their beliefs centuries ago.

The town is also known as a great place for commuters, with many people leaving to head to work each day. London and Brighton are both seen as great places for people to head to every day, with the town's train station proving a significant and important aspect of the town's commuter sector.

Lewes can also be a great place for those who want to get out into the countryside and see what Sussex has to offer. The town itself is home to three Sites of Special Scientific Interest. These include areas of biological interest, with River Ouse floodplains seeing  great habitats for invertebrates, and giving locals the chance to visit some of nature's top sites throughout the year.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801422978-ADNFCR
