The Cannonball House

A fine example of a place being less than what you’d expect. I had read about this house in a book or two. Seeing how it was also included on some Lewes maps, I figured it’d be a worthwhile addition to my trip there.

If you don’t know about it, the “Cannonball House” of Lewes is the last building in the town with any remnant of the British attack that took place there in 1813. A cannonball was shot at one of the building’s sides and is still there. I was expecting a large cannonball…..this is what I found:

There’s your cannonball. I was a bit disappointed to say the least. I came all this way to look at a superball. I’m still not sure why I’m including the house on the site….it IS odd in its own little way, yet it’s also very dumb.
