    Lewes – 8 Quirky Facts

    1. Bonfire Night
      Lewes is the centre of Sussex Bonfire Night celebrations. The annual torchlit, costumed procession is the largest in the country and one of the biggest events on the calendar that attracts tens of thousands of visitors who line the streets for what is a truly spectacular and quite unique event.
    2. Lewes Martyrs
      In 1557, 17 protestants were burnt at the stake, close to Lewes Castle. The event still echoes today and is one of the reasons behind the huge Bonfire Night celebrations.
    3. Winter Warmer
      One of the town’s most famous landmarks is Harvey’s Brewery. Popular with the locals, it also offers seasonal ales including an excellent winter warmer we can heartily recommend!
    4. Raft As A Brush
      An annual whacky raft race takes place on the River Ouse. Starting on the outskirts of Lewes, it follows the river to Newhaven where crowds (with buckets of water, hoses and flour bombs) line the riverbanks and Newhaven Bridge ready to ‘greet’ any rafts that have stayed afloat to reach the finishing line.
    5. Good’un Morgan
      The outspoken TV host and former journalist went to Chailey School just outside Lewes before going on to Lewes Priory sixth form college.
    6. Reggie Kray
      former journalist went to Chailey School just outside Lewes before going on to Lewes Priory sixth form college.
    7. Piltdown Man
      A hoax that fooled the world of science, in 1912 Charles Dawson claimed bones he discovered dated back 500,000 years and claimed his ‘Piltdown man’ was the missing link. He not only hoodwinked the Natural History Museum, with their support he fooled the world. It wasn’t until 1949 and new technology that fluorine tests showed the bones were actually only 50,000 years old. Further tests showed the jaw had actually come from an orangutan.
    8. Loves Lost
      Another famous Lewes son was Peter Love. A notorious pirate, he set up base on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides from where he would sail out, capture ships and bring them back to the island. He was eventually betrayed by local outlaw Neil Macleod and comdemned to hang. Three years later Macleod was turned in by members of his gang, well, all’s fair in love and piracy!
    9. Roy Grace
      Fans of crime writer Peter James might recognise Lewes as the headquarters of the Sussex Police, as often visited by his chief protagonist, DI Roy Grace.
