The Lewes Street Stories Initiative>>Chapel Hill>>Acknowledgements and References
Meg, Mary and Shân would first and foremost, like to thank their neighbours on the Hill for so willingly and enthusiastically sharing their knowledge about their properties. In addition, they are very grateful to Sue Harvey and Nick Cannan for putting together and operating the ‘visuals’ during the presentation to the Lewes History Group. Thanks also go to local historians for sharing their findings and images, particularly John Bleach (the Lund sisters and their poems), Colin Brent (details of historical ownerships in Chapel Hill), John Davey (postcards), John Farrant (Baldy’s Garden information and pictures), Philip Pople (cricket history) and Rendel Williams (postcards), as well as the staff of Lewes Library, East Sussex Record Office (ESRO) and the Sussex Archaeological Society (SAS). (A list of research references follows on the next page.) Finally Meg, Mary and Shân are very grateful for the support and encouragement they received from members of the Lewes History Group throughout the project.
