Joan Wolford

Following on from my chat to local resident Joan Wolford about the opening of The Assembly Hall, which was 75 years ago this Saturday 24th May, I called into the theatre to look at some of the things she had mentioned. Here are the original box offices, built into the pillars of the foyer; also … Continue reading

Views from Lewes Castle

When my children were young I loved (even if they didn’t) the books about The Little Red Train. Being at the top of Lewes Castle reminded me of that, seeing distant views and tiny people! In the bottom photo, on left, beyond the bowling green and a couple of buildings, is the second of the … Continue reading

New flats Goods Station Road, was Jiskoot

It’s good to walk, and these Victorian houses should remind us of a time when … Continue reading

Crescent Road Car Park

I’ve been out photographing car parks as part of  Car Parking Petition The Crescent road car park is the town’s oldest multi storey, now 45 years old. While not the most attractive building at the moment… how often in history has that been thought, 45 years after the building was built? What will we think … Continue reading

New hoardings for Ritz cinema

Some photos from Friday afternoon showing the start of new hoardings around the whole “cinema grotspot site” . Planning permission has been given for these, before the next lot of work… the planning application for the next stage is still ‘pending’… it’s now two months since the planning applications went in (on the notable date … Continue reading
