It depends how far back you want to go. It was the site of the railway station. Then a row of shops: (laceys ? Planprints? ) Then a builders materials yard. That's to the best of my knowledge. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

Here is a link to some pictures of the first (1846) Lewes Railway Station, approximately on the site of the Magistrates Court. It later served as the goods depot, and was demolished in the 1960s when the railway bridge over the Precinct was also removed.

For a picture of the large house called The Friars that stood on the site before the first Railway Station, see Lewes History Bulletin No.7 (linked, hopefully).
There is another image of this house, featuring the 1830 visit there by King William IV, in Lewes History Group Bulletin No.60, but that has only just been circulated to Lewes History Group members and won't be on the website for another month.

Gosh that brings back memories. What lovely buildings, shame they had to go. I remember Lacey's and also the coal merchants shop under the bridge. The building on the corner opposite Boots used to be a library. I fell through the rotting floorboards. Then it was Clifford Danns. There was a very rough car park if you went past the record bar on the right next to a coal yard if I remember well.

When it became the disused old station, there were a couple of flats in it. I think railway employees lived in it.
