Rottingdean reminiscences

Seafront looking west, early 1970

By Sam Flowers

I would like to share a favourite view of Rottingdean Gap and Undercliff (looking West), taken before the major changes of the 1990s.  

There were many secluded beaches.  At high tide the sea reached further ahead than today, producing when rough, impressive plumes of spray over the promenade.

I am sure this photo brings back fond memories to many others. Please share your memories by posting a comment below.

My family holds fond memories of the open-air swimming pool to the east.

When we were children we used to do a round trip one way or another. Walk along the undercliff from Black Rock to Rottingdean, have an ice cream at the shop there, then catch the open top bus back along the front. Or do the same in the opposite direction. Never got to use the pool there though. Only went to Black Rock swimming pool or King Alfred.
