A new take on Lewes as Friends give illustrated talk

If you are interested in seeing how Lewes has changed since the 1970s an illustrated talk by the The Friends of Lewes could be for you.

Marcus Taylor, from the Friends, will take people through a collection of photos by local historian John Houghton, of Swanborough.

When John died in 2013 he donated a box of around 400 35mm slides to the Friends, including photos he took around Lewes between 1970-1990.

Many were taken from unusual positions and provide a fresh viewpoint.

A total of 200 of the most interesting slides have gone digital and people will be able to see many of these in the Lecture Room of Lewes Town Hall, in the High Street, on Thursday February 19 at 7.45pm.

Marcus Taylor will be the guide and there will be a quick fire quiz after the interval.

Tickets for members of Friends of Lewes are free, but non-members can attend for £3. Wine and juice available in the interval.
