Jugg's Road Bridge, Southover Grange Window and Pure

"Jugg's Road Bridge" :- Last week I decided to do something that I'd never done before which was to walk from the historical town of Lewes back to the village of Ovingdean where I live in Sussex. There are a number of public footpaths and bridleways that cross the downs and rolling land with the village of Kingston forming a pleasant halfway point. In order to get from Lewes to Kingston you need to cross the unbelievably busy A27 dual carriageway and fortunately for me I knew the route that would take me up to the footbridge that traverses it. This is a shot from the Southern side of the bridge looking towards the Northern Lewes side. All in all the walk was approximately 7 miles or 11.26 kilometers.



"Southover Grange Window" :- This is one of the south facing windows of Southover Grange (formerly known as Southover House or Southover Priory) in the ancient and historical town of Lewes in Sussex, England. Southover Grange was built in 1572 (16th Century) for William Newton, Steward to the Earl of Dorset with Caen limestone taken from the ruins of Lewes Priory. It was in the ownership of the Newton family for nearly 300 years up until 1860. In the 1790’s the Prince of Wales often stayed at the Grange, sleeping in what is now known as the Regent’s bedroom. The Grange is also (and understandably so) listed as a Grade II building.



"Pure" :- Not too far from the ruins of the West Pier on the seafront to Brighton & Hove (England) there's a childrens play area and paddling pool. Within the enclosure there are some wooden huts that provide changing areas and toilet facilities etc. This is a view of the back of the huts as seen from the promenade. The uniform look and repetitive patterns were what caught my eye first and then the colors against the deep blue sky convinced me to take the shot.
