Half-way between Eastbourne and Brighton, the quiet Sussex
town of Seaford is often overlooked as a holiday destination but it has an
abundant and fascinating history.
Seaford's past looks down on the town, quite
literally in the form of the Neolithic Hill Fort on the cliffs at Seaford Head.
Over the centuries the town has been a bustling Cinque Port, a rotten borough, a
quiet seaside backwater, a centre for education, a garrison town and a target
for enemy action.
Seaford today is a residential town nestled between the sea
and the South Downs National Park, however there are still clues to be found
that point to the rich tapestry of its past.
In this book, local historian Kevin
Gordon embarks on a nostalgic trip using old photographs and postcards to
discover how the town has developed and changed.
