Here’s a little bit more information about this classic seaside town…
Hastings is a town and borough in East Sussex on the south coast, 24 miles east of the county town of Lewes and 53 miles south east of London. It has an estimated population of about 90,000.
Hastings gives its name to the Battle of Hastings, which took place 8 miles to the north at Senlac Hill in 1066. The town later became one of the medieval Cinque Ports, and a popular seaside resort in the 19th century with the coming of the railway. Hastings is a fishing port with a beach-based fishing fleet.
Hastings Old Town is an area in Hastings roughly corresponding to the extent of the town prior to the nineteenth century. It lies mainly within the eastern-most valley of the current town. The shingle beach is known as The Stade and is home to the biggest beach-launched fishing fleet in Britain. Many events take place every year in the old town such as the Hastings Old Town Week, Jack in the Green, the Seafood and Wine Festival, and the Bonfire Procession. Many of these events are centred on Winkle Island, which is, at the same time, the gathering place of the renowned Winkle Club.
The tall black wooden sheds you can see in front of the beach which were built to provide a weather-proof store for the fishing nets to prevent them from rotting in wet weather. The sheds were originally built on posts to allow the sea to go underneath but today the sea no longer reaches the huts due to shingle build up.
