TQ4109 : St Michael's church, Lewes

taken 6 years ago, near to Lewes, East Sussex, Great Britain

St Michael's church, Lewes
St Michael's church, Lewes
This church stands in the busy High Street of Lewes, at the foot of the mound bearing the keep of the Norman Castle, and is distinguished by its slender shingled spire rising from the top of a round flint tower (only two others like it in Sussex). Believed to have been instituted as 'the church of the castle', the expression "tanquam matrici ecclesie" (Mother Church) in the 16th century seems to imply that it held a position of seniority in the town LinkExternal link
