Railway Land Reserve
Situated alongside the meandering River Ouse, in the heart of Lewes, this 27-acre wildlife haven is a great place to go for a stroll with the family. The reserve was once a busy railway marshalling yard that has now been reclaimed by nature. It is a tranquil space just a stone's throw from the hustle and bustle of town.

There is a network of paths to explore. Walk as far as you wish.
All day, every day.
The network of footpaths across the reserve includes a disabled access surfaced path and some woodland and grass paths. All paths are flat, and suitable for cycling. However, the compacted stone surface of the disabled access path is not scooter-friendly. Expect to spend 1-2 hours exploring the nature reserve.
Dogs are welcome, however please keep them out of the water and remember to 'scoop the poop'.
Public toilets (including a disabled WC) are located in the Friar's Walk car park.
Located close to the centre of the historic High Street, there are plenty of refreshment options nearby.
