I visited Hastings for the first time last Saturday. I have been to other seaside towns like Dover and Folkestone in the past. I have enjoyed the all, and I enjoyed seeing the fisherman’s boats in Hastings. It reminded of times gone past where many coastal towns depended on fisherman for their livelihoods.
The circular walk I did near Hastings gave wonderful views of the city itself as well as the town. The countryside and the views were dramatic.
Walking back through the town to the train station – via a chippie – I took some photos of the fisherman’s boats and the buildings related to fishing. It was nice to see that they were still maintained. With the decline of the fisheries, it is very easy to lose this heritage.
