A historic guided walk of Seaford will take place on August 29.

Both residents and visitors are invited to attend the event.

It is being hosted by Mayor of Seaford David Argent and Seaford historian Kevin Gordon will be giving the guided tour of the town.

The tour will set off from the Seaford Town Council Offices, 37 Church Street, Seaford.

Walkers will be guided on a 90-minute walk around Seaford, in which Kevin will tell the story of the town and mention some of the extraordinary people who lived here.

The tour will end at the Council Chamber where there will be a chance to have tea with the mayor and view some of the rarely seen council regalia.

Kevin said, “The fortunes of Seaford have changed over the centuries.

“Iit was a bustling medieval port (the largest in Sussex), a military town, and a rotten borough for political elections returning no less than three Prime Ministers.

“In the Victorian period Seaford became a school town and was heavily garrisoned during the two World Wars. I will be providing fascinating historic information on Seaford’s bountiful past.”

Tickets are £5 each and can be purchased from Seaford Tourist Information Centre. All of the money raised will go towards mayor’s charities – Seaford Lifeguards and CTLA.
