About this product
- DescriptionEver since the days when it was reconstructed as one of King Alfred's burhs (fortified towns), Lewes has experienced a wealth of taverns, inns, alehouses, and public houses. Today the erstwhile county town of Sussex has a range of pubs that reflect this interesting, quirky, affluent yet also sometime fiercely independent and radical town. Author Kevin Newman takes the reader on a fascinating journey through Lewes' watering houses past and present. He explores the trivial, the unkwn, the spooky, the unusual and the achievements that have taken place in the town's pubs. He also tells of the many characters that have frequented or run Lewes' public houses, including the pub that stands on the site of the UK's highest death toll from an avalanche. Lewes Pubs tells many fascinating tales and will make locals and visitors alike want to visit one of the towns taverns straight away.
- Author BiographyKevin Newman is an author of history textbooks who also advises theatre and TV production companies on their historical plays and programmes. As well as being a GCSE History examiner, he gives a number of historical talks and presentations throughout the South of England every year and still manages to squeeze in some history teaching when not running his organisation, All-Inclusive History. A full time history teacher for 15 years, Kevin always tried to bring the past alive through exploring its buildings, and still takes educational and corporate groups, such as Sotherby's School of Art on architectural tours.
