A Changing Shore

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.

  1. Hello David,
    I would like to buy a copy of “A Changing Shore ” but Amazon reports it as out of stock.
    Do you have a secret hoard?
    My wife’s family have owned “Carolina” in Pett Level since the 1930s. We are pleased that so much history is coming to light since St Nicholas opened its vestry and displayed old photos.
