Lying in the comfortable shadow of the South Downs, near Lewes.



This small coastal town in East Sussex has a short but enterprising history,  dating mainly from the early part of the 20th century when a local businessman named Charles Neville decided to turn it into a holiday resort.



The Greenwich Meridian line runs through the town and is marked with a monument.



A pebbly beach is located beneath nearby cliffs.
