Lewes Race course history


Hi my name is Barry Foulkes and I have been researching the old Lewes Race course for over 11 years, login all runners, riders, winners, trainers and full history to the best of my knowledge, from 1727  to the final race day in 1964. We have set up a committee to help with fundraising and collecting information, with the aim to set up a museum in Lewes, with input from past and present trainer, we also welcome any information that you may know about the race course, that can make our museum more knowledgeable for visitors. 

We are currantly working on our site and hope to be fully up and running soon.
