Marine Court, an Art Deco block of flats and shops (opened 1937), resembles an ocean liner–the Queen Mary, to be precise. It’s always captivated me, and I wish I could have a look ’round one of the flats.
Marine Court is often described as a part of Hastings. This designation is incorrect; instead, St. Leonard’s-on-Sea claims this fabulous, fanciful building.
If you’re interested, Iain Sinclair, has written a marvelously poetic piece on Marine Court. You can find it here.
The Plough Inn, a delightful village pub near Battle and the High Weald, has served pints and meals to locals and ramblers for generations. If you’re in the neighborhood, try a pint of Harvey’s Best Bitter and a sausage sandwich. Delicious and restorative.
