Lewes, the county town of East Sussex, started out as a bridging point and market town. Steeped in history, the town was an important Saxon burgh by 900, boasting two licensed mints. Its importance was reinforced when William de Warenne, a key ally of William the Conqueror, built his castles here. First a temporary building on Brack Mount, known as Bray Castle, and second the impressive stone and flint building erected nearby, so giving Lewes, perhaps uniquely, two mottes and one castle. Lewes Castle still dominates and is well worth a visit.

Intercepted by the River Ouse, there are a number of gorgeous countryside walks to take advantage of in this charming ancient town. The Postcard Collection beautifully illustrates the culture and character of Lewes, taking us on a journey through its historical past.
