LABOUR of LOVE
Lewes artist Keith A Pettit’s latest landmark project draws on the history and landscape of East Sussex

“If I was to sit down over a pint and create the perfect scenario for me as an artist this wouldn’t be far away from what my imagination could come up with.”

To say Lewes artist Keith A Pettit is pleased with his latest job would be an understatement. He has been commissioned by Rother District Council to create ten sculptures which will line the 1066 Country Walk from Pevensey to Rye. The project was signed off on 12 March, just as the coronavirus lockdown began to take effect. The redevelopment of the 31-mile path, which was first established in the 1990s, has been funded by almost £165,000 of funding by the EU’s European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development, with the money also covering better signs, new seating, information boards and guide maps.
