Hillborough Caravan Site today
Hillborough Caravan Site today
This is what Hillborough Caravan Site looks like today - a housing development with a new roundabout on Reculver Road. It is almost unrecognizable from when my family and I used to spend our summer holidays here from the 70s right through to the 90s. The access road to the site is now a council-owned road called Sanderling Road and has several cul-de-sacs leading off it, whereas of course when the caravan site was opened it was simply a privately owned road and lead to a circular road surrounded by the caravans. The caravan site closed in 1998, probably because of lack of economy, as caravanning as a holiday activity has declined rapidly. I reckon even today it would've had problems in surviving, as I don't think many people could afford the rent for caravanning in these times of the credit crunch.
