2014 Restoration

After it became apparent that the sculpture had deteriorated, Lewes Priory Trust launched an appeal for funds to carry out a refurbishment. The following generously gave towards the work:

Lewes Town Council                 
South Downs National Park Authority 
Friends of Lewes  
Chelwood Trust 
Lady Chelwood 
Plazzotta Sculpture 
Harvey's Brewery 
Lewes Lions 
Lewes District Council 

Morris Singer Art Foundry, which cast the sculpture in 1964, undertook the restoration of the finish to the helmet and the bronze chaplet. V & J Baker & Son, of Lewes, repaired the concrete base. Rivermeade Signs Ltd made the commemorative plaque.

On 14 May, on the 750th anniversary of the battle, the memorial was unveiled by Richard O'Conor of Plazzotta (Sculpture) Ltd and Mayor of Lewes, Cllr Ruth O'Keefe MBE.
