We can now form a very clear picture of what the Priory buildings looked like thanks to the wonderful interpretive panels on the site. These were designed and illustrated by Andy Gammon who was appointed Graphic Designer for the Priory Park Heritage Lottery Project. Andy is a Lewes resident with impressive professional qualifications. He also designed and laid out the artwork as well as providing the inspiring illustrations for the Guide Book and his work is included in the Education Resource Pack. More information can be obtained from him at firstname.lastname@example.org and his work can be seen on the Institute of Archaeologists website.
The text for the panels was written by the authors of the guide book and, together with the illustrations, provides an evocative picture of what life must have been like in the medieval priory. The panels were manufactured by specialist contractor Rivermeade Signs Ltd and installed by Kier Construction.
