Hastings Heritage Trail

Launched Saturday
17 November 2018

Hastings Heritage Trail is an interactive walking tour featuring ten central Hastings locations that have stayed largely unchanged for at least 25 years. The trail has been created by photographer Maxine Beuret.

Each place has been chosen for its fascinating history with a focus on design. The trail is supported by 10 signs, a leaflet with a children’s brass rubbing and social media.

CARLISLE PARADE
UNDERGROUND CAR PARK

Designed by council engineer Sidney Little in 1931, it’s the first underground car park in the UK! It holds up to 150 cars with colour coding every tenth pillar to help people remember where they parked.
