Get ready for the great Lewes mini-wheelbarrow race.

The two elderly contestants look like they might never be able to straighten up again.

As Rouser recalls, the race took place in the early 1900s from South Street to the top of School Hill. Or was it the other way round?

The race took place between two pubs. A quantity of beer must have been involved.

But it must have been a painful experience - not to be treated as an annual event.
