In Lewes on 2nd December

Going out to lunch with ex-work colleagues at the Swan, but in Lewes far too early so went exploring in the vicinity of County Hall.

The sculpture reminds me of a freestanding concrete sculpture which once stood in the new Churchill Square shopping development when I came to Brighton in 1971

A narrow lane led me away from the County Hall buildings, at the bottom it had a cast iron column set in the centre of the passage.  I just rather liked it being there.

Heading west from the twitten (its Sussex for an urban narrow lane or footpath) I found a sort of temporary park based on a derelict school site (St Anne’s School).  And here I saw a pair of beech trees, close together so they seem to have just the one pattern of branches.

In the last part of the journey to the Swan I passed a building made of a huge range of materials, and having a lot of built history in it.

Glorious mix of building materials - brick, tile, limestone, flint, sandstone and more

Just a part of that previous picture, with mixed materials and an old arch of brick

More mixed materials and a complex history - I guess
