I lived at Winchelsea Beach and attended Winchelsea school which was behind the Church.This was from 1925 to 1930 when my family moved to Eastbourne as a result of the 1928 disaster when the sea breached the shingle and flooded the whole area.The names of the streets were not known to me at that age but I do remember the scenes in these pictures.
