The Lewes History Group aims to study and record the history of Lewes, and to make the history of the county town accessible to the local community, and to others who share our interest. To do this, we have:
Monthly public talks, and a monthly Bulletin.
Members’ own research projects, or group undertakings, supported by research meetings to review progress and develop expertise.
A website providing access to research resources and links to useful organisations.
Everyone is welcome at our meetings. Entry fee is £2 for members and £3 for non-members.
Become a member of the Group and enjoy access to our full range of activities. As a member, you can also benefit from a reduced entry fee to our meetings, and volunteer to help run the Group.
You can receive email notifications of news and upcoming events by entering your address at ‘News via Email’. We have a bibliography on topics of Lewes history, online access to many issues of the Sussex Archaeological Collections, a catalogue of maps of Lewes, other research resources, and links to useful organisations. We are also on Facebook, and Twitter.
The Group is managed by voluntary Committee members, led by Ian McClelland.
