Anne of Cleves' House, Lewes :: Shared Description

It is not thought that "Anne of Cleves' House" in Lewes was ever lived in by the fourth wife of Henry VIII, but she did own it as part of her settlement when she agreed to a divorce from the lecherous old monarch.
It is now a museum run by the Sussex Archaeological Society and is a fine L-shaped tudor building with interesting furnishings and an attached museum of local history.
The oldest part of this Grade II* LinkExternal link building dates from at least 150 years before Henry's time however as it has a C14th cellar. The part of the L facing the street is the oldest part above ground, dating from the late C15th or early C16th, while the part of the L perpendicular to the street dates from the late C16th. It is situated in Southover High Street in the south of the town of Lewes almost opposite the ancient, ruined priory.

Note: Cleves is sometimes spelt Cleeves.
