A guidebook writer and editor for over thirty years, Tim Locke has worked on a plethora of travel-related projects on regions of Britain, including guides covering places, architecture, natural history, heritage and Slow travel in Sussex itself. He has lived in Lewes in East Sussex for over twenty years, and hugely values living in a town oozing with history and character, and embedded within the South Downs, and with so many community activities on offer. The extraordinary breadth and quality of walks and cycle rides in Sussex was a key factor in encouraging him to move from London to Lewes in 1995, and since moving there he has explored hundreds of miles of Sussex paths, tracks and lanes by bike and on foot. With local authorities and the South Downs National Park he's been involved with creating cycle and walk maps. He's also often picked up his trowel and participated in local archaeological digs on a wide range of prehistoric, Roman and medieval sites. Tim's a keen amateur musician and helps run New Sussex Opera, an ambitious opera company that stages full-scale semi-professional community productions of rare operas as well as more mainstream shows, and has appeared in productions in a number of Sussex venues.
