Lewes History Group Meeting – Monday 13 October 2014, 7:00 for 7:30pm

Kevin Gordon: A Quirky Guided Tour of Lewes

Every summer Kevin Gordon provides a monthly guided walk around Lewes. In this talk he gives an opportunity to take a stroll around the town without the need to climb any hills!

This virtual tour includes four graveyards (All Saints, the Quaker churchyard, St John sub Castro and St Michael’s) where Kevin will point out some headstones of interest and talk about the etiquette of death. We will also visit one of the town’s twittens where he explains the tell-tale architectural features which show how rich the original owner was. Along the way we’ll meet a few Lewes characters, such as Xit the dwarf who made his living in a most extraordinary way and local school teacher and guardian of Lewes virtues, Kate Fowler Tutt.
