Saturday 2nd July 7pm to 9 pm
Guided walk looking at the Industrial History of Lewes
Led by Graham Mayhew, expert on the history of Lewes

A walking tour of Lewes’s industrial heritage. From the Victorians to the mid-20th Century, Lewes was an important centre of manufacturing and commerce, with its own gas works, electricity and water companies and boasting several breweries, ironworks, cement works, printers and a range of smaller manufacturers, mainly concentrated along the river, leading to the geographical expansion of the town with the construction of new working-class housing.

Meet at 7pm at the Barbican, Castle Gate off the High Street. About a 15-minute walk from the railway station allowing for the steep climb up to the High Street.

Nearby car parks at the Maltings, Westgate Street, Market Lane and West Street all free on Saturdays after 5pm.
Also, the huge car park at County Hall has an all-day fee of £1 on a Saturday.
