Canon O’Donnell Hall renovation nears completion

Canon O'Donnell Hall renovated July 2018Canon O’Donnell Hall renovation finally nears completion.

After years of delay while the development of this prominent building was considered, then reconsidered, it stood in a sad and empty state. Most long-time Lewesians have a memory of this place and it was a shame to see it derelict for so long.

Friends of Lewes, along with others, consistently opposed demolition and favoured careful renovation. After more than 15 months of work on it, it is good to see 4 housing units added to the town’s stock and this ‘gateway’ building looking good again.
