One of the striking features of Lewes is the presence of the Downs, visible from most of the streets. In addition to the Downs views of the Castle and mound also help orientate oneself and reinforce the town’s unique setting.
The wider landscape context of the Downs is being considered in the design of the streets and public spaces within the development. This will create and add to the many moments where you ‘stop, stand and stare’ at the long views around Lewes, and will compliment the more intermittent views of the river and surrounding green spaces seen from the site. It will also help us enhance the view of the site when looking from the Downs into Lewes.
