Lewes History Group talk: The Stories of East Street and Albion Street – Monday 14 June 2021, 7:20 for 7:30pm start

A Zoom Webinar

Sarah and Peter Earl: The Stories of East Street & Albion Street, Lewes

East Street and Albion Street comprise what has been referred to as the first phase of ‘New Town’ development in Georgian Lewes. What was originally on the site? How did the land develop into streets? What was going on in Lewes at the time? What has happened since the original builds?

To answer these questions Sarah and Peter Earl, long-standing residents of East Street, have been on a journey of discovery since 2018. Although neither are qualified in historical research, they were inspired by the work and findings of earlier researchers taking part in the LHG’s Street Stories project and took advantage of the training offered to LHG members.

You are invited to see how far they have travelled up to, and since, their small Heritage Open Days exhibition in September 2019, and to learn what sources have proved most useful in piecing together a fascinating history.
