Have you tried to use the bridleway past Lewes racecourse buildings since June and found most of it fenced off?  Or are you concerned to read that it has been fenced off?

The route with the problems is just north of the racecourse buildings, on the route that runs between Mount Harry at one end and Lewes Town Centre or Lewes Prison at the other.  It used to be very wide, up to 11 metres across.  If you were going to or from the prison direction you just kept straight ahead.

 

In June 2016 the landowner erected fencing which corrals walkers and riders into a narrow strip of land to the right of the picture, which will get very churned up and unpleasant in winter, so we want to get the old, wider route put back.

This is an important south downs route, and is the main route linking Lewes to the South Downs Way

 

If you have used the route that has now been fenced off please fill in an evidence form.  You can find more information and a form to download at   http://travelloglewes.co.uk/index.php?page=don-t-lose-your-rights-o...

 

 

Best wishes
