Alfriston. Population 774. 

There are many small villages whilst walking the South Downs Way. Some with more character than others, but all with the very much obliged pub. In Alfriston there are 3 to serve its population. And on a Thursday night one of them hosts a pub quiz. Remember all trivias have a question about Mexico, no matter where in the world you are. 
Pubs also can serve as accommodation. In this small village there is one that “housed a ‘Sanctuary Post’ which provided instant church protection to fugitives and smugglers”.    It is said that there was a gang that used it as a base and whose leader got sent to the prisons in Australia in 1830.
