SANDY BEACH & WEST BEACH - 1930's / 1950's

Summer days

By Laurie Stonehouse

The following pictures show how busy the west beach and promenade area was in the 1930's/1950's. This area is now looking a bit sorry for itself, hopefully in the not-too-distant future this part of Newhaven will be regenerated.

Wot, no swimmin' or fishing'!!!     Bye-Laws that have been happily broken by thousands of people for the past 78 and a half years it would seem (including me, although I'll admit, many years ago)

"....that part of the harbour which lies between Horse Shoe Sluice and an imaginary line drawn........"
surely that means anywhere in the river because isn't/wasn't Horse Shoe Sluice somewhere above the Swing Bridge?
