Hastings Pleasure Pier
Looking across Pelham Beach on a hot summers day. The pier is not giving much pleasure these days as it has been closed fully for over three years, and campaigning for the local council to compulsory purchase it an repair reopen it is unlikely to see much movement in the next few years, if not decades.
Pelham Beach :: TQ8209
Pelham Beach is a 1.4km long stretch of pebble beach along Hastings sea front. It goes from the Hastings Pier at the boundary with St Leonards, to The Harbour arm breakwater.

Much of the beach, along with Pelham Place car park and the Stade family fun park, has been created from land reclaimed from the sea. With the event of the railways more tourists visited Hastings and so more beach space was required. The beach is generally pebbles but sand is exposed at low tide.
