A Lewes Archaeological Group talk
John Bleach: The Medieval Churches and Chapels in and around Lewes
John will identify the many churches and chapels in and around Lewes during the middle ages, locate them on the ground so far as is possible, and consider their possible origins.
He will also discuss the disappearance of many of them from the townscape – some of them didn’t survive the middle ages, others fell into disuse in the 16th century and were turned to other uses or demolished – and notice some surviving indicators of their existence that can be seen on the ground today.
John Bleach was the Custodian of Lewes Castle for the Sussex Archaeological Society, 1977-2013.
This talk will be followed at around 8.45pm by the AGM.
