Visited again and picked the coolest day of the week . Fans of Foyles War will recognise the old fishermens net huts being distinctive tall buildings still in use. Also used excellent shops for sale of seafood and fish. Just a unique place

On the edge of Hastings Old Town this is an area well worth visiting both to see the fishing fleet and unusual net huts and also to be able to buy really fresh fish at reasonable prices

The state is a great place to wander and has lots of wet fish shops, fish & chip shops, cafes, pubs and amusements nearby. It's a good starting place for a day beside the sea.
