|On the 18th you can still see the sweep of the racecourse. Horse racing at Lewes can be traced back to the 17th century. Before the arrival of the railway horses would walk from their stables and it is reported that four horses once walked from Wales. The race days were great events much loved by the nobility and King George IV, whilst Prince of Wales, was a regular visitor in the early 19th century. Lester Piggott rode winners on the course in 1950. Sadly the course had no running water, electricity, or gas and the last race was held in 1964.|
