TQ8209 : Fishing Net Huts

near to Hastings, East Sussex, Great Britain

Fishing Net Huts
Fishing Net Huts
The huts were used to store fishing nets and equipment. The weatherboarded structures were around 25 feet high and 8 feet square. Due to the lack of space the huts were restricted to 8 square feet at the base, so they were built tall.

There are around 43 remaining in Hastings, which were Grade II listed in the 1970s. Most are found to the Fishermans Stade along Rock-A-Nore Road There were once many more which were destroyed by storms or demolished in the 1950s for redevelopment.
