Hastings Past by Rex Marchant

When they left, sea-raiders came and carved out their own little kingdom and the sea has ever since played a leading role in the town's history. ... a fascinating read. Rex Marchant writes in a lively, easy style ... Amazing details and information ... a superb selection of old photographs ... Hastings & St Leonards Observer
