|On the 17th green sits another Boundary Stone, this time to mark the boundary of the old Borough of Lewes, which was replaced by the District in 1972. Beating the Bounds also known as Gangdays and going-aganging dates back to before the Norman conquest. This stone was part of the route for the Lewes day. A group of residents young and old would walk the boundaries and when a marker or stone was reached as part of the ceremony boys would beat it with green boughs normally of birch or willow. |
