Newhaven


Newhaven lying at the mouth of the River Ouse once hosted a Bronze Age fort on Castle Hill. Around 480 AD, the Saxons established a village close to where Newhaven now stands, known as 'Meeching'.
In the 1790s the settlement began to be called the New Haven at about the same time a breakwater was built to stop longshore drift of shingle from blocking the rivers course. The present breakwater was built in 1890.
The village was of little importance until a rail line to Lewes was built in 1847.
The Newhaven Lifeboat was first commissioned in 1803, being one of the oldest in Britain.
Established 20 years before the RNLI, the original lifeboat came about after HMS Brazen was wrecked in 1800, when only one crew member was saved out of the 105 on board.
