The Ruins of Old
Slaugham Place in
the grounds of
Slaugham Manor
TQ 22 NE 10/184 28.10.57

Slaugham Manor was built by Walter Tower in 1901 at some distance from the
old site. But the garden is bounded by the ruined stone walls of the late
C16 or early C17 house built by Sir Walter Covert and designed by John Thorpe.
It formed a complete courtyard. It was largely demolished in the C18, when
the staircase was removed to the Star Inn at Lewes, and is now incorporated
in the Lewes Town Hall. The principal remains are portions of 2 towers, part
of the kitchen and hall and 3 round-headed doorways.
