A Changing Shore (revised edition)

A Changing Shore, An Illustrated Account of Winchelsea Beach by Michael and Ruth Saville, charts the development of this small seaside settlement since the 1930s, when it was called Dogs Hill or ‘thirty-one’ after the nearest Martello Tower. The book covers the coast itself, nearby Camber Castle, the development and silting up of what was known as Smeaton’s Harbour, the loss of the lifeboat Mary Stanford and development of the Rye Harbour Nature Reserve.

The revised edition includes addition information in several of the chapters, including the Rye Harbour Nature Reserve and the Mary Stanford lifeboat disaster. In addition, many of the pictures are now in colour.
