A walk down All Saints Street, Hastings

Well, it took me over an hour to walk the few hundred yards that is All Saints Street in Hastings. It was resplendent under the mid afternoon sun – not the best time to take photos but sometimes you have to before everything disappears into shadow.

At least, this time, I managed to stop myself for a while before being drawn over the road and onto the beach. But that’s another post.

People making a real effort with their potted plants And, when the decisive moment is the sudden appearance of a babies’ buggy.

Maybe not the oldest architecture, but I love these little cottages.

These slab steps are a fond memory of my youth – sitting there with my then besties 🙂

More early architecture – once inhabited by fishermen and tradesmen, many have now been priced out by holiday let landlords.
