Here is a rare picture of the emerging development of Saltdean in the mid to late 1930s. No Ocean Hotel yet so we can say it was before 1938.
The white track in the centre of the picture (heading right) is the start of Bannings Vale, you can also see the start of Hamsey Road. This photo was taken from the clifftop opposite the Telscombe Tye.
Thank you G & W Kerr
