Hastings Pier and Bottle Alley

Hastings Pier


I liked this particular perspective of Bottle Alley and Hastings Pier. Where the vanishing point of the alley intersects with the entrance to the pier.

There was good news for Hastings Pier in November when the Heritage Lottery Fund awarded 11.4 million towards the total project cost of 13.9 million. The Hastings Pier and White Rock Trusts’ aim is now to have the Pier restored by the end of 2014. The good news is that they plan to have a quality restaurant at the end of the Pier. I reckon I can claim credit for that idea as I suggested it in one of my first blog posts about the pier.

    The decaying bottle alley, and the burnt out pier, not a good advert for Hastings.
    Better times ahead , once pier is repaired.

    I remember bottle alley when it had a cafe , chairs and tables for the afternoon tea and wooden shutters to keep out the worst the sea could offer.This was in the fifties and sixties, when Hastings was a prime holiday resort .Perhaps something can be done to restore the alley to its former glory
