Partial Collapse of Lewes Castle’s Curtain Wall

The sad incident on 11th November of the collapse of a privately owned section of Lewes Castle’s curtain wall has led to the decision to close the Castle on 11th November whilst an inspection of all the walls is carried out. This part of the wall is a separate piece away from main castle structure and is precautionary measure due to the recent incident and adverse weather conditions. The museum remains open and the castle is expected to reopen on 12th November. The parts of the castle owned and cared for by The Sussex Archaeological Society are annually inspected by a third party expert and regularly by staff to ensure the safety of our visitors, staff and members of the public.
