Remains of the Cluniac Priory of St Pancras, Lewes
Built in 1076 the Priory had extensive links with the continent and was one of the most important richest priories in the south of England. Its importance was highlighted during the dissolution when the land was granted to Thomas Cromwell who wished to build a country house on the site. However, these plans were quashed when Cromwell fell from grace and the land reverted to the crown. Part of the lands were lost to the railway when it was built in the 1840s. This view looks east.
