Lightbulb Batttle of Hastings

Great horned owl
Hastingleigh in Kent was named after that tribe..The Labour Party has an overall control of the council with 23 seats..The Rape of Hastings is one of the rapes, the traditional sub-divisions unique to the historic county of Sussex in England..In the 13th century, much of the town was washed away by the sea..During a naval campaign of 1339, and again in 1377, the town was raided and burnt by the French, and seems then to have gone into a decline. As a port, Hastings' days were finished..The beach is mainly shingle, although wide areas of sand are uncovered at low tide.. The town is generally built upon a series of low hills rising to 500 ft (150 m) above sea level at "The Ridge" before falling back in the river valley further to the north..Hastings has an Army Cadet horse (ACF) Detachment) which is part of the Sussex ACF group.. This detachment is based in the old Territorial Army Unit Building on Cinque Ports Way..The Saxon Shore Way, (a long distance footpath, 163 mi (262 km) in length from Gravesend, Kent traces the Kent and Sussex coast "as it was in Roman times" to Hastings..Another revival occurred in Hastings in 1983 and has become a major event in Hastings Old Town calendar. Ilfracombe in North Devon has had a Jack in the Green procession and celebration since 2000...

Hastings Pier can be seen from any part of the seafront in the town, however it is currently closed following safety concerns from the council and then a serious fire burning down most of the buildings on the pier and causing further damage to the structure..On the seafront at St Leonards is Marine Court, a 1937 block of flats in the Art Deco style that was originally called 'The Ship' due to its style being based on the ocean liner RMS Queen Mary.. This block of flats can be seen up to 20 mi (32 km) away on a clear day, from Holywell, in the Meads area of Eastbourne..There are 4 museums in Hastings; the Hastings Museum and Art Gallery, the Old Town Hall Museum, the Hastings Fishermen's Museum and the Shipwreck Museum..The town has an independent cinema called the Electric Palace located in the Old Town..Hastings main shopping centre is Priory Meadow Shopping Centre, which was built on the site of the old Central Recreation Ground which played host to some Sussex CCC first-class fixtures..Hastings was now a small fishing settlement, but it was soon discovered that the new taxes on luxury goods could be made profitable by smuggling, and the town was ideally located for that..

There are two funicular railways, known locally as the West Hill and East Hill Lifts respectively..A historic British Rail Class 201 "Thumper" can sometimes been seen (and heard) on historic runs to and from Hastings.. This was a regular service from Hastings to Ashford and many locals have fond memories of hearing the trains rumble in and out of Hastings..Many church buildings throughout the town are Grade II listed including; Church in the Wood, Ebenezer Particular Baptist Chapel, Fishermen's Museum and St Mary Magdalene's Church..An important former landmark was "the Memorial", a clock tower commemorating Albert the Prince Consort which stood for many years at the traffic junction at the town centre, but was demolished following an arson attack in the 70s..Series se7en was filmed in Ireland and London from late August 2012 to December 2012 and was broadcast on UK television in March and April 2013-Hastings is twinned with: France Béthune, France-Belgium Oudenaarde, Belgium..The town is served by Stagecoach buses on routes that serve the town, and also extend to Bexhill, Eastbourne and Dover.. National Express Coaches run service 023 to London..There are many parks and open spaces located throughout the town, one of the most popular and largest being Alexandra Park opened in 1882 by the Prince and Princess of Wales..
