The ruins of Priory

The Priory was founded between 1078 and 1082 by William and Gundrada de Warenne, who also built Lewes Castle. It was the first Cluniac priory in England. Eventually in 1537 the Priory was demolished by an Italian Engineer on the orders of the Royal Vandal Henry VIII. The ruins are now mantained by the Town Council
