Friends of Lewes Members’ Coffee Time Talk on Zoom, Tuesday 17 May 2022, 10:30am

A Zoom talk for members of Friends of Lewes

Marcus Taylor: Cockshut and Winterbourne – the Streams of Western Lewes

Marcus Taylor looks at two streams in Lewes which, though very short, have had a significant effects on the town over the centuries.

One made possible the building of Lewes Priory and supplied its advanced drainage systems and ponds with water. The other, with its seasonal flow and thus a dry channel for much of the year, has brought disruptive flooding to  Southover on many occasions.
