The Sussex Archaeological Society can confirm that Lewes Castle and Museum is opened following the collapse of a separate standalone section of the castle curtain wall under the stewardship of East Sussex County Council.
The Castle site has been visually inspected and checked following the wall collapse and the building fabric shows no sign of loss of integrity. To ensure the safety of all, the south tower is temporarily closed to allow for further inspection by a specialist team. The inspection will be completed by Friday, November 15th.
Visitors are still able to visit and enjoy the rest of the castle site and views.
