Moving to East Sussex?
The oldest man-made object in East Sussex is a Neanderthal handaxe thought to be
80,000 years old – the area is awesomely ancient and has played a key role in British
history. Neolithic man worked flint mines there around 4100 B.C. and when the Celts
arrived in 700 B.C. they built hill forts at Cissbury and Devil’s Dyke. The Romans
settled the county extensively, building large fortresses and leaving hoards of
coins and pottery behind them when they were driven out by the Saxons in 491 A.D.
The South Saxon kingdom quickly rose to prominence – King Aelle was the first Bretwalda,
or chief king, of the Saxons – before falling under the sway of Wessex. From 895
Sussex suffered constant Danish raids until the accession of Canute in 1016.
Due to its position on the south coast, the Normans had strong links to the county
even before the 1066 invasion: the Battle of Hastings saw William the Conqueror’s
decisive victory. It became a focal point of several rebellions including the 1381
Peasants’ Revolt and Jack Cade’s 1450 rebellion. During the Civil War East Sussex
declared for Cromwell while West Sussex was Royalist. Thereafter, peace reigned
in the region until 1793, when war broke out with France and large numbers of troops
were stationed on the coast. This would be repeated in the Second World War, when
the coast became a fortress. The advent of the railways in the 19th century saw
another kind of invasion as the coastal towns became wildly popular seaside resorts,
which they continue to be to this day. With one of the warmest, sunniest climates
in the UK, East Sussex is an attractive holiday destination with plenty to see and
Lewes is the county town, an attractive hodgepotch of houses of all periods lining
twisting streets whose pattern still adheres closely to the Saxon layout. Lewes
Castle, built by a Norman Lord, dominates the town. Other historic sites include
the remains of Lewes Priory, Bull House, Southover Grange and public gardens, and
a sixteenth century timber-framed Wealden Hall House known as Anne of Cleves House
because it was given to her as part of her divorce settlement from Henry VIII, though
she never lived there. The Bonfire Night celebrations are world-famous: six local
societies process through the streets dressed as smugglers before going to their
bonfires. They build effigies of Guy Fawkes and Pope Paul V, as well as topical
tableaux, which are burned before the fireworks begin… On a more sedate note, Glyndebourne
House, nearby, holds an annual summer opera festival.
For years an important fishing port, Hastings is now best known as a resort, despite
the fact that its beach is mostly shingle. Little remains of the Castle that William
the Conqueror built on the sandstone cliffs to mark his victory, but what there
is is starkly impressive. Hastings Pier is now shut but still features on all the
postcards. The nicest part of town is the old town, although the elegant Georgian
houses in Pelham Crescent and Wellington Square are also beautiful. Marine Court
on St Leonard’s Front is a 1930s Art Deco block of flats that represents an ocean
liner. Blue Reef Aquarium is very popular with families, as is the Smugglers' Adventure
in St Clement's Caves and the miniature railway.
Beachy Head, near Eastbourne, has the dubious distinction of being the world’s third
most popular suicide spot. However, the highest chalk cliff in Britain is very beautiful,
with views of the south east coast from Dungeness to the east, to Selsey Bill in
the west. At the opposite end of the scale, the flats of Normans Bay are very popular
