Here’s a trip down memory lane or if you moved here recently this is how Hastings and St. Leonards on sea was in the 1980’s. As you can see in this raw footage a great deal has changed over the years such as Priory Meadow shopping centre being where the cricket ground in the footage was. Its over an hour and a half long so you may want to skip through it but its a sure sign of the progress the area has made. From what we can see it is the only footage available on-line so might one day be if historic importance to the town and area so enjoy this retrospective of Hastings in the 80’s.
