I notice that there is a new satalite image of lewes at maps.google (and I guess google earth). This replces the previous one that was about 6 years old.
The new one features most of the rees-elliott 'enhancements' of the town but is not so new as to include the vandalism of the lewes castle gun garden by the SAS.
If google replace these images every five or so years wouldnt it be a good idea to try to get copies of them to show future generations how their town used to look?
Do you know if this would be possible, Webby?

The new one is 2-3 years old but has only just been uploaded. It still isn't very clear though.

The "new one" must be 5yrs old because the old Baxter's printworks in St Nicholas Lane and the trees on the Lewes House/Walwer's Lane sites can clearly be seen.

I believe google earth allows you to see all versions of imagery google have for a given location, which I think is what you're looking for.

In Google Earth menu: Select 'View' and tick 'Historical Imagery'. Now you can slide through the images for a given location back and forth in time.

I like the fact it's safe enough to leave windows open and shops don't need to put grills up at night.
