Can anybody advise the exact site of Warenne's Cluniacist monastery in Lewes? My OS has short-changed me on others and this one looks no exception.



The OS shows the priory at Lewes, and the modern-day railway line from Brighton to Lewes runs through part of the priory's grounds.

The OS grid reference is TQ-413-096 if that helps.
