Stuck Lorry on Pelham Place
Stuck Lorry on Pelham Place
During the May Day Run, motorbikes had been parked here, there and everywhere along the seafront and roads. The lorry could not get through without hitting a few bikes, causing traffic chaos during the very busy day in Hastings.
May Day Run
The May Day Run started in the 1960s, and sees thousands of motorcycles travel a 55-mile route from Farnborough, Kent to Hastings, East Sussex, on the May Day bank holiday Monday. Up to 20,000 motorcycles descend on Hastings sea front road and car park.
Marine Parade
This 0.5km stretch of the A259 continues on from Pelham Place at the junction with George Street and on to the junction with Rock-A-Nore Road where the road name once again changes to The Bourne. This section of road has the greatest density of eating places in the town. Located in a series of listed buildings on the North side of the road are many fish and chip shops, pubs, restaurants, cafés and confectioners.
Located opposite on the South of the road is The Stade Fun Park, an Arcade, and access to Pelham Beach.
