TQ4210 : The Snowdrop Inn

taken 8 years ago, near to Lewes, East Sussex, Great Britain

The Snowdrop Inn
The Snowdrop Inn
Built in 1840 on the site of Britain's deadliest avalanche which occurred during Christmas 1836 when a snow cornice estimated to be 15-20 feet thick was blown off the cliff above in a raging blizzard onto Boulder Row, a terrace of seven cottages, below killing eight people with seven others rescued after being buried alive. Located on South Street, originally the A27 heading south from Lewes until the construction of the bypass during the mid 1970s. Now a dead end street.

The pub itself has been under new management for a few years who are reinvesting in the pub's place in history having gone rapidly down hill during the previous decade under the ownership of a well known chain.
