ROSSETTI ROAD: There may well be a road named after the artist Rossetti in Pevensey Bay, but did he ever visit the Bay? Val Princep the artist lived in Pevensey Bay, of whom another road is named, and many artists including members of the pre Raphaelites visited. If Rossetti did come by then 156 years this week it would have been the date of his Wedding in Hastings at St Clements Church to Lizzie Siddall

THE MOST EXPENSIVE Garage in Pevensey Bay: Its got to be at £80 to 100000. Looks like an ordinary wooden garage door from Richmond Road but its listed as an exciting opportunity to acquire a building with the added potential to become a building plot with suitable planning permission. Seems its soon going to get so bad I could get rid of an old cardboard box from my garage as a ‘starter home’!!
