Seaford Through Time (Paperback) by Gordon Kevin
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.
