Lewes

Henry Ernest Dudeney (1857-1930) lived at 138 High Street, Lewes, East Sussex in 1915-1921 (which was being renovated when I visited in 1995 and appears to have been previously used for some commercial purpose). In 1921, he moved to nearby Castle Precincts House just behind the Castle and stayed there until his death. The latter house is now called Brack Mound House: I have photos. According to Alec Clifton-Taylor, this house has both ordinary hung tiling and 'mathematical tiles'. He played the organ in St. Michael's Church, in the High Street under the Castle. He is buried in Lewes.

Mathematical tiles occur on numerous buildings in Lewes: tiles which simulate bricks, though bedded in mortar A one day meeting on the topic was held at Ewell on 14 Nov 1981. Eighteen papers were presented and a 44 page set of Notes of Ewell Symposium was issued shortly thereafter and was updated twice, the last version being labelled Issue 3 of Feb 1983. Contact Maurice Exwood, 64 The Green, Ewell, Epsom, Surrey, KT17 3JJ for copies.
