Hastings


A coastal town in East Sussex with a 2012 estimated population of approx. 87,000.
The towns most obvious claim to fame is with its connection to the 1066 Norman conquest and the Battle of Hastings. For many centuries Hastings was a quite important fishing port, which even today still accomodates the largest beach-based fishing fleet in England.
With the arrival of the railway it became a very popular seaside resort.
 

St Leonards


Part of Hastings since the late 19th century though it retains a sense of separate identity. It lies to the west of central Hastings. The original part of the settlement was laid out as a new town by James Burton from 1826.

Foundation stone was laid in November 1862 and by December 1863 work was completed.
The clock was lit by gas, and arranged to light automatically at 9pm each evening.
Moving the memorial was proposed several times, plans in 1952 suggesting demolition. Arsonists set fire to the clock twice in 1973 the clock was damaged and surrounding stonework was cracked.
Demolished Nov.1973.
