Pool Valley
Pool Valley
So named as in the past high seas would break through the low cliffs and form a pool where fishermen used to drag their boats for shelter. The area last flooded in the mid nineteenth century the result of which was to build up the sea defences. The area to the left just out of the picture was the site of Brills Baths an indoor bathing place that used seawater pumped from the sea. Since the beginning of the twentieth century this area was used as a bus station first for local buses and later for National Express coaches. The tall building in the middle has recently suffered a fire and is currently awaiting rebuilding.
