Building Materials in Lewes – Friends of Lewes talk, Wednesday 3 February 2021, 7:20 for 7.30pm

A Zoom talk

Marcus Taylor: Building Materials in Lewes: our Architectural Heritage

What is it that makes Lewes such a special town? In addition to its superb geographical downland setting, astride the gap cut through the chalk by the River Ouse, and its rich cultural history, Marcus Taylor hopes to convince us that a wealth of building materials over the years has led to some very distinctive streetscapes and fascinating architectural details, which also deserve full credit.

In this rapid, image-led sweep through the centuries, he highlights what Lewes houses are made of and why – and also why that is good news for residents and visitors alike.
