More about this scene


Caption for Winchelsea, Castle Street 1912: This view gives an idea of the regular and spacious layout of the town. Most houses are 17th- and 18th-century, but over thirty medieval undercrofts or cellars survive; they were used for storing Bordeaux wines, the basis of its trade.

Memories of Winchelsea

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.

We used these steps up to Primary School and back twice a day 1955-1961. We lived at the bottom of the Strand Hill where my Mother still lives today. I still use the steps when I am there. I adore being in Winchelsea and truly hope to live there again one day. Unfortunately the Well does not look so beautiful (...Read full memory)

When I was born in 1949, my family were living in the above referenced house. Does anyone have any history on these houses, and perhaps who now owns 1?
