Meeting – Monday 8 April 2013, 7:30pm

John Davey: The Lost Industries of Lewes

Mention of Lewes these days does not conjure up images of an industrial town but, during the years that preceded and followed the Industrial Revolution, Lewes might genuinely have been described as a hive of industry. In this talk, John Davey will trace the 19th century growth and the 20th century decline of the manufacturing industries that – for 100 years – provided employment for most of the menfolk of Lewes.
