Chiltington Lane

welcome to Chiltington Lane

by C L Scribbler - Summer (at last) 2016

What can you say about a short stretch (about a mile) of quiet English country lane in East Sussex which leads nowhere, nothing ever happens, and not many people live?

This is my 10th year of living here and as I work from home in about the middle of this lane I thought I'd make a little list. This and the stories connected will be shared with you on this blog in the months ahead. To give you a taste of what's to come tentative topics include:-

Even before you saw this web site you may already have been thinking - what a charming and delightful place Chiltington Lane is. How can I spend more time looking around the area if I don't live nearby or know someone who does? Well - you don't have to compromise by staying as far away as Lewes... b and b
