Look back in history

Glimpse back into Bexhill Old Town’s Hanoverian history with a small exhibition in Barrack Hall from June 19-21, 10-4pm, entrance free.

The building, then called Russell Farm, abutted the parade ground of the Kings German Legion which is now a park.

The exhibition organised by Bexhill Old Town Preservation Society gives a flavour of life at that time, on the cusp of the industrial revolution and enormous social changes that ensued, and will feature two rooms.

The first will be looking at personalities in Politics, Arts and Science, and the second will focus on Bexhill’s local ‘news’ during that time, and the people who lived in, what is now known, as the ‘old’ town.
