The Hydneye, Hampden Park, Eastbourne
The Hydneye, Hampden Park, Eastbourne
The strangely named road commemorates the lost medieval village of Hydneye whose site is just behind the photographer to the north. Hydneye was important enough to be a minor member of the Cinque Ports. However, decay set in in the Thirteenth century as longshore drift silted up the entrance to the small harbour. The village depopulated further after the black death and soon disappeared altogether. The site is still marked on the 1870s map but is now built over by the suburb of Hampden Park, this part being built during the inter-war period. The sea is now three miles away.
