Keere Street, Lewes
Keere Street, Lewes, taken 11 years ago
From Lewes District Council's website LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) "Keere Street, a favourite location for TV and film companies, is also well worth a look. This twitten is a steep cobbled byway linking the town centre to Southover. Flanked by picturesque cottages and with the beamed 15th century bookshop, the street marks the boundary of the medieval town with a fragment of the wall lying behind the houses on the east side. Tradition says that George IV, while Prince of Wales, drove a coach and four down Keere Street for a wager."
And from Lewes Town Council's website LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) "Keere Street (the street of locksmiths) was partly built on the dry ditch of the town wall. The central watercourse was paved with water-rolled flints (petrified kidneys)."
