Lewes, set among the Downs and just a few miles from the sea, is prized for the rich history enshrined in its Norman castle, medieval town walls and venerable High Street houses. Those lucky enough to live there, however, relish the vibrancy of its here-and-now as much as its enviable heritage. In the long, hot summer of 2003 David Arscott explored the county town with his microphone and camera to record the thoughts and experiences of people from all walks of life Lewes life. Here are its shops, restaurants, hotels, churches, pubs and schools, and first-hand accounts of day-to-day life from a wide range of Lewesians involved in arts and crafts, brewing, politics, journalism, photography, book-selling, hairdressing and a wealth of other industries and activities. Ranging from the busy High Street to the estates on the fringes of the town, this is contemporary Lewes as it has never been seen before - a vivid celebration of today's community which will itself one day be a small part of the historical record.
