Southover Grange, Lewes

Cheesmur were delighted to be work with East Sussex County Council on the refurbishment of Southover Grange in Lewes.

The original house was built as a private house for William Newton, Steward to the Earl of Dorset, and has undergone numerous internal alterations over the years. Constructed in 1572 The Grange is a Grade 2* listed building and ESCC identified Southover Grange as a suitable location to offer improved wedding and registry services. Cheesmur carried out these important works, which included working closely with the Client Team and local Conservation Officer to bring back into use the three grand rooms and central hall as wedding function rooms. In addition to the improvement of the wedding facilities generally, the project included delivering new kitchen, WCs and services installations and improved finishes and decorations, as well as better public access to the building, with a new lift and stairs to the upper levels.
