The Pursgloves of Lewes - [LEWE]
Known to be a prehistoric crossing point on the River Ouse , this town has been under Roman and Norman occupation. Lewes is now the administrative centre for the county of East Sussex. In 1846, Lewes became a local railway junction and this started the modern development of the town.
Kings church is on the east side of the river and St Anne's church is on the west side of the river. All Saints is an old parish, which survives as a church hall and community centre.
