I’m a relative newcomer to Lewes. I live in one of the new houses at Crosshaven Place in Church Lane and I’ve become interested in the history of the South Malling area.
I would like to put together an account of the development of Mill Road, its industries, its buildings and the people who have worked and lived in them.
I have done quite a bit of research in the records at The Keep at Falmer and I have talked to several residents about their memories of the area.
I’m sure I’ve got some things wrong and there are lots of gaps in my knowledge. I would be very happy to receive additional information: facts, stories, house deeds, plans, photographs, maps etc.
Please get in touch with me if you:
- Would like to see what I have discovered in full and have a chat about it
- Have any information about any aspect of the distant or recent history of the Mill Road area that you would like to share
- Know of anyone whom I might contact for help with this project
Thanks and good wishes,
