Thomas Paine was one of the great heroes of the American Revolution , born in England , he was responsible for kickstarting the uprising against the British . He wrote a series of "pamphlets " that promoted radical thinking , rebellion and free speech and his works outsold any other author of the time . He spent several years in Lewes and it was at The White Hart Inn that he came up with ideas and principles that would be a clarion call to the common people of America to break free from British rule.
Join me on a stroll around the town he loved and the pubs he drank in and hear the extraordinary story of a radical thinker .
