Lewes


A castle was first built here by the Saxons, they also named the town.
There was a Saxon mint here which survived into the early years of the Normans who then built Lewes Castle on the same Saxon site.
In the 16thC. during the Marian Persecutions 17 Protestants from Lewes were burned at the stake in front of the Star Inn.
Lewes became a major port with docks on the riverside until nearby Newhaven at the mouth of the Ouse River was developed.
Cliffe, named after Cliffe Hill, and Southover once separate villages, are now part of the town.
To the north of the town is the 'Pells' including Pells Pond and several 19thC. streets.
There is a Prison and Crown Court in Lewes.

High Street

 

At the junction of High Street and Friars Walk the High Street, from this point, ascends steeply to the War Memorial, and for this portion of its length is called School Hill, a name that has been traced back as far as 1498.
