  1. A very sad sight indeed! Hundreds of years of history gone overnight. So sad for the owners of these lovely cottages.

    A further worrying development is the saturation of the cliff above Henrietta street and the potential loss of the Kipper shop along with some cottages on this street. Hopefully the council will take measures before any further damage is done.
