Visit to Newhaven Workhouse – Saturday 14 August, 2-4pm

The Lewes History Group, courtesy of Paul Myles, invites you to join their visit to the former Newhaven Union workhouse between 2 pm and 4 pm on this Saturday afternoon. The workhouse, currently owned by Lewes historian Paul Myles, is a listed building that has planning permission for conversion into flats. It has been stripped back to reveal its original structure, with separate sides for male and female paupers, but conversion work has not yet started, so this is a unique opportunity. The workhouse grounds now house the former Newhaven Community Hospital, now Newhaven Rehabilitation Centre, Church Hill, Newhaven. The post code is BN9 9HH, if you navigate that way. Local parking is available.
