Worthing, Warnes Hotel 1925

Memories of Worthing


My father and mother owned this hotel at this time and I have many memories, celebrities coming to stay, running around the stairways, seeing the coach parties arriving for their vacations. It is no longer a hotel but the memories are as vivid as yesterday

My great-grandad, George Stent, ran the livery stables in Ann Street, shown on the right-hand side of the Town Hall, until the motor car put him out of business. His brother, John Stent, operated as a 'fly proprietor' from 4 Alfred Place, Worthing. When motor cars came along he sold his business to Wortax.

In the late 1950s I used to go as a young boy to Worthing Paddling Pool. Can anyone let me know exactly where it was and what happened to it?

My grandparents would take their annual holiday in Worthing with my father in the 1950s and subsequently we moved down here from up north to be by the sea.
