the Life and Times of the Bay Hotel in Pevensey Bay.
To mark the moment when restoration work began on the Bay Hotel in Pevensey Bay, The Pevensey Bay Journal is to celebrate the restoration process with a special four page insert newspaper that will be published on Saturday March 30.

The results of extensive research, trawling contemporaneous local newspaper accounts from the day the plot of land was earmarked as a hotel for the ‘developing resort ‘ 1898, through to the 20s. 30s and the heyday of the hotel in the 1950s, right up to the restoration work in 2019, we present for the Digital Age, a newspaper insert that offers, the Life and Times of the Bay Hotel in Pevensey Bay.
