I like to eat and drink the good stuff. Day-tripping visits or longer stays hold equal appeal. Exploring the pleasingly rural landscape dotted with cute country towns is to experience country Australia at its best.

In Lewes this event not only marks the date of the uncovering of the Gunpowder Plot in , but also commemorates the memory of the seventeen Protestant martyrs burnt at the stake for their faith during the Marian Persecutions.

Lewes Farmers’ Market, one of the first in the UK, was started in the s by Common Cause Co-operative Ltd  and is a popular re-invention of Lewes as a market town. The Farmers’ Market takes place in pedestrianised Cliffe High Street on the first and third Saturdays of every month, with local food producers coming to sell their wares under covered market stalls. A weekly food market in the Lewes Market Tower was established in July by Transition Town Lewes to allow traders to sell local produce.
In September , Lewes launched its own currency, the Lewes Pound , in an effort to increase trade within the town. Like the similar local currency in Totnes , the initiative is part of the Transition Towns movement. The Lewes Pound and the Transition Towns movement have received criticism for a failure to address the needs of the wider Lewes population, especially lower socio-economic groups.

Queen’s Birthday Honours 2017: Full list of UK awards
History[ edit ] The Medway area has a long and varied history dominated originally by the city of Rochester and later by the naval and military establishments principally in Chatham and Gillingham. Rochester was established on an Iron Age site by the Romans ,  who called it Durobrivae meaning “stronghold by the bridge” , to control the point where Watling Street now the A2 crossed the River Medway. Rochester later became a walled town and, under later Saxon influence, a mint was established here.
The first cathedral was built by Bishop Justus in and rebuilt under the Normans by Bishop Gundulf , who also built the castle that stands opposite the cathedral. Rochester was also an important point for people travelling the Pilgrims’ Way , which stretches from Winchester to the shrine of Thomas Becket at Canterbury.

They were expecting to meet an RAF on its last legs. Clearly, that was a total delusion. Fighter Command is very obviously still in business. Horst Schulz, who flew on the second raid, recalls: When we got back we all agreed it had been a terrible day, but there was not much discussion.
Not until the following day did the significance of the one-third losses we had suffered sink in fully. WE came to realise that if there were any more missions like that, our changes of survival would be almost nil. Roderich Cescotti, another German airman, agrees: I regard September 15 as the fiercest battle. None of the other battles in which I was involved made such a profound impression.
We were shaken by the number of fighters the Royal Air Force was able to put up on that day, and by the determination of the pilots.
