This turret (part of the Waverley Hotel) was demolished when the Arndale Centre was built in 1981. The rest of the hotel still stands in Ashford Road.

The imposing white building in the distance with the dome and columns was the original Barclays Bank (probably Lewes Old Bank in 1926), at the corner of Terminus Road and Junction Road. How clearly it stands out from the air – and no wonder it was singled out (and destroyed) by the pilot of a German fighter-bomber on 7 March 1943. The first turning on the left from the seafront is Carlisle Road - note the tower of the Devonshire Baths and the glass roof of the two swimming baths. Via Google Street View, one can see where the ornamental turret used to be above the first shop on the right - what it pity it was removed!
