Battlefield monument Lewes

Battle of Lewes 1264

Friday 12th May 2023

As part of the Battle of Lewes Festival, John Freeman will be leading a walk on the battlefield site which now has video QR code readers (accessed by mobile phone). Six posts around the battlefield offer five- minute videos explaining different aspects of the battle with local actor Mark Williams setting the scene.

John will lead a two and a half hour walk around the battlefield taking in the QR posts and adding additional information on the battle. The battle site is on the Downs to the west of the town. Lewes is a charming medieval town with a Norman Castle, ruins of a Cluniac Priory so a visit is well worth while, and perhaps stay overnight to see the Festival on Saturday.

Meet at the West County Hall Car Park (BN71UE) at 2pm. For further information contact John using the details below.
