Welcome to Peacehaven
Paul Smith's Peacehaven
Request for info -anyone know of "Montrose Lodge" on valley road -- see more
I've noticed that there's not that many pictures of Peacehaven on the web, so I'd like to rectify that. I have a few photos of Peacehaven starting in about 1980, which you can view in these pages, - I hope to expand upon them, and link to other Peacehaven pages. I lived in Peacehaven from 1962 -1973 and went to school at Roderick Avenue and Telscombe. I've visited regularly since. There's a mixture of record and pictorial photography, including a few of Saltdean, Rottingdean and Telscombe Village. firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you have any photographs of "old" Peacehaven that I could use on these pages? - I'm looking to record how things change. - So yesterday would no doubt be different to today.- If you have photos you can scan I'd be pleased to receive them , or I can collect on my occasional visits. I would also be interested in any negatives that you might care to loan or donate or indeed any Peacehaven memorabilia. I would add that these pages are intended as an open resource to all, I have no commercial interest. View the Galleries!

|Rare Peacehaven movie footage. Look at this (repeating) two second clip of cars near Keymer/Slindon avenue, probably early 1950s (?), compared with a similar scene from 2013.
See at my movies page for enchanting clips of the Motley Dancing School, a Wedding in Telscombe Village,and one or two little bits of the cliffs and more streets. I offer my sincere thanks to the Bateman family for allowing me to use their movie footage. In due course I hope to get more info about the people in the films There's lots of photos on these pages too, so browse the galleries and let me have your comments
Here's two photos new to the collection, thanks again to Barry Parks.
