At the heart of rural Sussex lies the beautiful county town of Lewes. It retains the essence of bygone Lewes with its medieval streets, old English churches and tiny twittens (a Sussex word for alleyway). The town, dominated by the remains of a Norman castle, is surrounded by chalk cliffs, marsh lands and the distinctive landscape of the South Downs.
The Lark Ascending is a musical work by Ralph Vaughan Williams. It was inspired by a poem of the same name written by George Meredith, which tells the tale of a skylark singing an impossibly beautiful, almost heavenly, song. Vaughan Williams was working on The Lark Ascending in 1914, just as World War I broke out.
