NEW - a series of guided walking tours of the Lewes Priory Park and the Gundrada Chapel at Southover church. For tickets see below.
Over a period of 450 years between c.1080 and 1538, Lewes Priory became the richest religious house in Sussex and the most important of the English Cluniac foundations – in architecture, influence, art and learning.
The tour brings to life the history, splendour and colour of the Priory during a walk through the remains of its massive buildings. Then, at the Gundrada Chapel, visitors will see the bones of the priory founders, Gundrada and William de Warenne, discovered in two lead boxes (‘cists’) in 1845 when the railway was dug through the remains of the Great Church.
William had fought alongside The Conqueror at the Battle of Hastings. Also on show is his wife Gundrada’s tomb slab; its Tournai marble top, blackened with wax or resin, is one of the finest Romanesque carvings to survive in England or even in Europe. It was brought back from Isfield church in 1775 to Southover and is thus reunited with her bones.
