The Montfort’s March »

The Battle of Lewes took place on 14th May 1264, when the armies of King Henry III and rebel baron Simon de Montfort clashed just outside the town walls. The king was defeated. After the Battle of Lewes, de Montfort summoned England’s first representative Parliament. The Battle of Lewes Project, based at Lewes Castle, aims to promote interest in this early struggle for democracy. It is a community #BattleOfLewes project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and will culminate in a special #BattleOfLewes celebration in 2014 marking the battle’s 750th anniversary. From 3rd to the 18th May 10:00am Lewes Castle, 169, High Street, Lewes bn71ye Click Here For More Details
