The America Ground: 8 1/2 acres of Hastings town centre that in the early nineteenth century was an open section of beach, apparently beyond boundary and with no obvious owner...until they were all evicted by the government in 1835. This is the well researched story of that beach, which almost became 'independent' of the ancient town, but ultimately played a crucial role in expanding the old fishing port into a modern seaside resort.
