Situated high above the valley of the River Oise is the little Saxon town of Lewes, boasting one of the best preserved castle Barbican’s in England. Today we will also visit Anne of Cleves House, a 15th century timber-framed Wealden house that formed part of Anne’s divorce settlement from Henry VIII in 1541.
Today we travel to Sheffield Park Station to board the Bluebell Line steam train for a round trip. It was the first preserved standard gauge passenger line in the world, and everything here has a feel of the past. We also enjoy a visit to the magnificent Sheffield Park Gardens, laid out in the 18th century by ‘Capability’ Brown.
