The JK show was becoming a tired concept and most people were only tuning in for the heated confrontations.

I do love The Repair Shop, they have amazing skills and its nice to see a bit of rural Sussex and Downland occasionally.

I think Rockstar is talking about CAR SOS with Tim (the fixer) and Fuzz (the mechanic), great viewing that. There is a new one coming to the UKTV channel called "Bangers and Cash" which looks interesting...... https://www.businessupnorth.co.uk/yorks ... w-tv-show/

Coast on BBC is good, Time Team and for some reason I can't get enough of Friends, I think its Jennifer Aniston's fault that.

Thank you Jubbs.Thats the one. I know what I am looking for now [Success.png]
I do like Coast too. I have been round pretty much all of it and just filling in a few gaps now. In fact I am down your way the week after next! (Chichester) So any recommendations for nice places to visit. National Trust/ English Heritage etc will be welcomed! We have been to Battle before but never up to Eastbourne so we might go there too.

Im an Eastbourne/Pevensey man myself so Pevensey Castle is interesting, Romans, Saxons and Normans all used it and the whole of Pevensey marshes was open water and the castle was on a peninsular back in the day.
Long Man of Wilmington next to Alfriston (Smugglers Inn) and Cuckmere Valley, the Sussex Ox may have Morris Dancers this time of year if you are lucky. Birling Gap and Belle Tout lighthouse and a walk from The Downs golf club along to Jevington over the Downs is good.
The Six Bells at Chiddingly is worth a visit.
Eastbourne Promenade is one of the best, the Wish Tower and the King Edward Lawns are nice as is the promenade from there to The Italian Gardens and Holywell. If you fancy a bracing walk, Holywell to Cow Gap and Shifting sands with the wind in your face is great, watch the tides though (you can walk down and back along the beach or the top of the low cliffs) you'll end up with a view of the Lighthouse and the towering cliffs above it from a short (safe) distance away.
Hesrtmonceux Castle and the surrounding countryside is pretty good, as is a trip down to Normans Bay and The Star inn then through to Bexhill and Hastings where i think CT can fill you in ?

Thanks Jubbs, I think that is my full week sorted out! I do like my history, so lots of places for us to visit. I will google where you have posted and let you know how we got on when we get back. [Waving.png]

I'd love to tell you how wonderful Hastings is, and it was once, but in recent years has fallen into decline. Unless you like amusement arcades and charity shops.

In Hastings, the old town is a must see with its fishing huts and beach launched fishing fleet. Some good pubs too.

Alexandra Park is nice for a stroll and if you are up for a challenge the Country Park has some stunning views (but cover your eyes when you pass the nudest beach).

covehurst-bay-hastings-country-park-east.jpg

The Castle is just a ruin and over the past 50 years seems to have got bigger (comparing old photographs) thanks to the building skills of Hastings Borough Council not the Normans. And as you may be aware, no fighting ever took place at Hastings Castle, the battle of Hastings in 1066 took place (allegedly) in the town of Battle (but exactly where in Battle is still a matter for debate).

The newly built pier is just wooden decking, nothing much on it apart from a few painted garden sheds. It is a shadow of it's former grandeur.

There is the Jerwood Gallery (or whatever they are going to rename it due to a dispute with its sponsor) if you like art. I think it is still open.

You could visit The Smugglers Adventure (Used to be called St. Clements Caves before they were commercialised). I used to run a bar in the caves when they had pop groups, discos and private bookings. Ideal these days for somebody with kids. They are man made caves allegedly cut out of the sandstone by smugglers.

The days you could go ballroom dancing, have tea dance or sit on the prom listening to a brass band in the bandstand or organ music in the Sun Lounge have long gone.

There is a section called The Marina where you will find a block of flats in the shape of a cruise liner called Marina Court, Marina Pavilion that was has been re-named Azur and is home to Jazz music and shock horror, they never got around to building the actual Marina. If you want to see Yachts, go to the crumbles in Eastbourne.

The famous Albert Memorial clock tower in the town centre was demolished by the council as it was in the way of their road improvement plans

Along with the 1930's Art Deco open air bathing pool (I think up north they called them Lido's).

So, Hastings is possibly OK for a day trip, but I wouldn't think you'd find much else to do if you stayed longer. You'd be hard pressed to find much choice in the way of hotel accommodation. If you want a choice of Hotels, again Eastbourne is by far the better town.

Places worth visiting nearby... Rye is a fantastic old town with cobbled streets and plenty to see. Winchelsea is worth a stroll. Dungeness is an ideal spot to catch The Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Steam Railway. In the shadow of Dungeness Nuclear power station you have a unique lonely spit of land full of wildlife. You can visit the lighthouses.

Who would live in Emerdale ?, every week some one is being killed, arrested, beat up and threatened not the idea of a typical Yorkshire village, it has moved away from the farming and vets side and the local Woolpack if real would be better visiting in the evening than watching TV as it is all going off in there.

Thanks for the info CT. We have been over to Rye in the past and Dungeness is fantastic though I didnt get chance to go on the railway. I did go up a lighthouse though. The other places look fab so we will do some exploring next week. Oh Thanks to Jay also. [Waving.png]
