Yesterday I walked along to the end of Rock-a-Nore Road for the first time since returning to Hastings. This is as far East as one can get in Hastings at sea-level without walking on the beach. There are warnings of rock falls beyond that point. The photo is of the cliffs towards Fairlight. Before reaching this point one passes the few remaining fishing boats pulled up on the beach, and the famous fishermen's huts. There are also museums and an aquarium and amusement park. It is near here on the area called the Stade that it is proposed to build the controversial Jerwood Gallery. It does seem to me that there is far too much concentration of attractions in one area, while the other end of the promenade, as far as West St Leonards, is neglected.
